Post Master's Certificate

Learn how to advance your career while you support students by becoming a Superintendent of Schools through PennWest Edinboro's post-master's program.

One Of The Best Online Programs In the U.S.

PennWest Edinboro's graduate programs are consistently ranked among the nation's best online programs by U.S. News & World Report.

Why Edinboro Stands Out.

Since its founding in 1957, PennWest Edinboro has built a legacy of training educators.

Whether we are preparing future teachers for work in the classroom or providing advanced certificates and degrees for school leaders, we focus on teaching best practices so you are well-prepared to meet the future needs of the students and communities entrusted to your care.


"Leadership for Student Achievement" is the common thread throughout the Superintendent program. Upon completion of this 30-credit program, you will be prepared to become a district-level leader within any Pennsylvania K-12 school system or the Intermediate Unit.

If you have already earned your Master's in Teacher Leadership at Edinboro, you can complete your Principal certification in just 15 credits.

All nine courses and the internship in this program are Act 45 and Act 48 approved.

Developing leaders who promote the success of all students continues to be the driving force in our program. This is demonstrated by the dedication of our program faculty who strive to meet the needs of our graduate students and assist each one of them along their leadership journey.

Edinboro's dedicated faculty strive to meet your individual needs and assist you along your leadership journey.

They will become your mentors and guides as you delve into coursework that covers the full gamut of topics, from personnel leadership and labor relations to educational technologies and facilities, community relations and more.

A superintendent's internship will give you hands-on experience in the role of district leader and prepare you conduct and present a focus project on student achievement.

When you meet the cutoff score for the appropriate PRAXIS School Superintendent Assessment (SSA), you will be ready to assume your new position as a Superintendent of Schools.
