Partner with us to prepare your district’s future school leaders with a PASC credential.

The University of La Verne provides candidates an opportunity to earn a Preliminary Administrative Services credential through a twenty-four unit online one-year program. This program is accredited through the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) and is comprised of seven sequential courses plus fieldwork. This program offers a fall and spring start with a regional cohort format that way students have a cohort lead in addition to cohort peers to work with for the entirety of their program. There will be cohorts starting in San Diego County, Kern County, and Los Angeles County. The courses are based on the California Professional Standards for Education Leaders (CPSELs) and integration of Cal APA exam content. The courses offer a thematically, scenario-based, integrated, curriculum that is focused on real-world problems, issues, and the application of relevant academic theories and concepts. What makes the La Verne administrative credential program a standout is the ongoing support and guidance our candidates get. The effective course curriculum is designed in a “learn by doing” fashion both in classwork and through school-based fieldwork to encourage leadership development by providing learning activities commonly experienced by school site leaders.
