MASTER OF EDUCATION (M.ED.) IN CATHOLIC EDUCATIONAL LEADERSHIP

Catholic schools are different by design: they do more and teach more than other schools. The training of Catholic school leaders must be targeted to this difference and not simply defer to modern secular school leadership programs; something more and something different is required. Ave Maria’s M.Ed program meets this requirement. Our accredited degree is not beholden to the compromised benchmarks embraced by other programs. Our focus is both practical and spiritual—delivering the skills and inspiration for successful Catholic educational leadership.
