Loyola's program is ideal for successful teachers who want to make a difference on a larger scale and serve the mission of improving the education of all students, including those who have been traditionally underserved. With small class sizes, a dynamic instructional staff, and a curriculum that is comprehensive and innovative, the program successfully fuses theoretical principles with a pragmatic, real-world understanding of the contemporary educational context.

Teachers from all backgrounds and levels of experience are encouraged to apply to the program, and can choose between the following programs:

Students seeking Administrator II (Principal) certification are required to successfully complete the School Leaders Licensure Assessment exam.

Our programs are nationally recognized by Educational Leadership and Maryland Instructional Leadership Framework.
