Are you ready to take on the challenge of school leadership? Beginning Summer 2018, Loyola University Maryland will offer a 21-credit Certification in Administration and Supervision to a dedicated group of experienced Montessori Educators. This post-master’s program will lead to Admin 1 Certification in the State of Maryland and reciprocal jurisdictions.

Why might this program be right for you? Hear what others have to say:

There is currently an enormous need for Montessori school program administrators who have both Montessori qualifications and leadership qualifications. The M.Ed. in Montessori Education program I took at Loyola was an amazing experience and fully prepared me to be a progressive and effective educator. Since I am interested in pursuing a school leadership role and am passionate about Montessori education, I did not hesitate to apply to this program– M.P. (Loyola alumna)
