Principal Certification


Marywood University’s principal certification program educates school principals who serve children, families, teachers, and communities in ethical and inspiring ways. Our program is approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.

Low-Residency Program

Our 18-credit principal certification program can be completed in as little as 18 months. Courses are delivered in hybrid and online formats, while periodic on-campus workshops afford you the opportunity to network with current and aspiring school leaders, hear engaging speakers, and review your coursework. A required year-long internship provides hands-on experience in a public or private school setting.

Experienced and Accomplished Faculty

Courses are taught by experienced principals, superintendents, and other school administrators from throughout Northeast Pennsylvania. Using national standards, best practices, and current research, our faculty will guide you through the challenging issues confronting school principals today.
