Curry College is pleased to announce that a 10% tuition discount will be offered when two candidates from the same school district enroll in the Principal/Supervisor Licensure Program. A 20% tuition discount will be provided when three or more candidates from the same school district enroll in the PSL Program.
The Curry College Principal and Supervisor Licensure Program (PSL) is a unique training opportunity for aspiring school administrators. The program focuses on linking best practice with theory to achieve measurable, real-world performance goals. Our program will prepare candidates for one of the following leadership roles:
· Principal/Assistant Principal Licensure (Pre-K-6; 5-8; 9-12), or
· Special Education Administrator (all levels), or
· Supervisor/Director (level depends on prerequisite license)
Next cohort scheduled to begin in Summer 2017 on the Milton Campus.
One-Year Intensive Licensure Program - Our program provides 550-hour Pre-practicum/Practicum supported by relevant coursework. Course assignments will require candidates to assume specific responsibilities in the school where they work as part of the Practicum. These responsibilities will be assessed against both practical and theoretical research-based criteria, including the most recent Massachusetts standards and evaluative instruments, to ensure that theory and practice are closely aligned.
Convenient Schedule and Hybrid Format - Classes are scheduled one evening a week and are delivered in a hybrid format - a blend of in-person discussions and online activities - to best meet the needs of busy professionals.
State-Approved Program - Curry's Principal and Supervisor Licensure Program has been approved by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
