Forming Catholic School Leadership Nationwide: This unique and successful online educational program, offered by LMU's Center for Catholic Education (CCE) through the Department of Educational Leadership within the School of Education, provides professional development that is specific to the Catholic school administration context. The one-year (4 course/10 graduate level units) addresses four major themes in Catholic school administration; mission-focused leadership; faith and spiritual leadership; operational management; and instructional leadership. The integration of faith and professional practice is made relevant through practical experiences that prepare students to grow as Catholic school leaders through project based learning strategies. The courses of this certificate program also directly apply to the LMU M.A. in Educational Leadership degree.
