Innovative Programs for a New Class of Leaders

Affordable, high-quality programs that provide you with relevant real-world experiences in an accelerated format. The M.S. and ED.S. programs can be completed in 4 - 5 semesters or 30 credits and include state licensure. Our accelerated Ph.D. program accommodates your busy work and home schedule. All three programs meet online once a week in the evenings and not on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.

Virginia public school employees receive a 25% discount off of per-credit tuition.

The Educational Leadership Program uses a cohort model where you will attend small, personalized, live, online classes with the same educational leadership students throughout your program. The unique online learning environment enables our students and faculty to engage in a class setting that simulates a face-to-face classroom. Our program caters to full-time working professionals.
