The EPPSP Experience 

Course of Study

The experiential design of EPPSP incorporates each aspect of the principalship training model into a six-semester experience.  Utilizing the concept of adult learning as an essential foundation, this experience allows school leaders to work together intensely in a cohort group environment.

The core curriculum of EPPSP is based on the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium Standards and on effective school leadership research.  These standards and principles support the development of instructional leaders who are equipped to lead in a complex society and in a variety of challenging leadership roles.

"The EPPSP program is unique and effective precisely because of its collegiality.  The cohort group concept opens doors to creative learning and to future networking and to support.  I would recommend the program to any budding administrator who accepts and understands the important of teamwork."
