Make a Difference – Become a School Leader!

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 offers a spring and fall start with an intimate cohort model.

What makes LaFetra’s administrative credential program a standout is the ongoing support and guidance our candidates receive. Courses are taught by highly successful district leaders, including superintendents and cabinet members. The course curriculum is intentionally designed with a “learn by doing” framework. This model encourages leadership development through learning activities in school-based fieldwork, commonly experienced by school site leaders.

Courses are based on the California Professional Standards for Education Leaders (CPSELs) and the integration of CalAPA exam content. Accredited through the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) the program is comprised of six sequential courses with embedded fieldwork and CalAPA-focused support courses.

Course Sequence:

  • EDLD 572 (3) | Foundations of Educational Leadership
  • EDLD 573 (3) | Contemporary Issues in CA School
  • EDLD 571 (3) | Human Resources
  • EDLD 570 (3) | Instructional Leadership
  • EDLD 576 (3) | Organizational Management & School Community Collaboration
  • EDLD 577 (3) | Fiscal Policies and School Law
  • EDLD 568 (3) | CalAPA Introductory Support
  • EDLD 582 (3) | CalAPA Completion Seminar
