K-12 Principal Certificate - School Leadership

Return to School of Education Return to: School of Education

The School of Education at the University of Pittsburgh K-12 Principal certificate program is a 15-month cohort-based program. Presented in an executive format, the Leadership Initiative for Transforming Schools (LIFTS) program collaborates with units in the School of Education and across the University.

The purpose of our principal certificate program is to develop educational leaders of character and integrity who are inspired by a sense of justice to improve the achievement of all students. Drawing from the fields of education and management, the program equips leaders with expertise in instructional, institutional and public leadership grounded in ethics, inquiry, and integrity. The program encourages the shift from teacher leadership to administrative leadership through academic rigor in the classroom, authentic experiences in schools and reflective opportunities for integrating personal and professional growth.
