School leadership is a critical determinant of student achievement and school improvement. SLC has been chosen by the Louisiana Department of Education and the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education to prepare critically-needed leaders as Principals through its Alternative Certification Program. Our leadership preparation expands the knowledge and skills of participants through in-depth study while allowing them to reflect on their work and ability. Participants apply newly learned skills in real life settings students through a 125-day, in-school internship period while earning eighteen hours towards a Masters Degree in Education.
