New York State’s largest educational leadership program will now be offered in Manhattan! You can earn your School District and School Building Leader certifications in our accelerated Saturday program at our new location – just two blocks away from Penn Station.

The Educational Leadership (EDL) program prepares K-12 educators for advancement into positions at both the school district (SDL) and school building (SBL) levels. Such positions include superintendent of schools, district superintendent, assistant superintendent, principal, assistant principal, department chairperson, or athletic director. As of Fall 2007, this is the first program of its kind in New York State that serves as a pathway for certification at both the district and building levels.
