Coursework addresses leadership across the realms of curriculum, student support and social-emotional learning, administration, community, and governance.  The program culminates with students submitting a scholarly dissertation. Students proceed through the program in a cohort of committed Jewish educational professionals, enhancing the learning and creating a strong community of learners.  

All students admitted to the program, in good academic standing, and who submit a FAFSA, are eligible for generous support. Support decisions are based on need and merit and may be as much as 50% of tuition.
