The next career step for many educators is to transition to school leadership. Southeastern’s Master of Education in Educational Leadership program is designed for experienced teachers who are interested in advancing their careers with a leadership or administrative role in the K–12 school system. At Southeastern, we believe that education administration allows professionals to serve God by helping to create a well-run school community. The program teaches you to become a skilled principal or assistant principal while putting the mind of Christ to good use in your school.
Our course sequence covers all your academic work, after which you are qualified to take the Florida Educational Leadership Examination (FELE), the exit requirement for the program. All courses and the FELE exam must be completed prior to taking the Supervised Practicum in Educational Leadership course, EDUC 5276. Students must pass all sections of the FELE prior to graduation in order to graduate from a state-approved program. If you have already completed three years of teaching, successful scores on the FELE make you eligible to apply for Educational Leadership certification in Florida. Your final step is to enter the administrative employment pool in your school district.
