The Professional School Administrator Program (PSAP) provides an opportunity for full-time administrators to obtain their superintendent licensure and a Doctor of Education in educational leadership. The program was developed by Boston College more than three decades ago to provide an opportunity for full-time school administrators to pursue doctoral study.
The Lynch School of Education at Boston College partners with the Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents (MASS) and Teachers21 to prepare future superintendents and school leaders for public, Catholic, charter, and independent schools.
Boston College's Ed.D. program is an active member of the Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate, a national effort by 55 institutions to reform and strengthen the education doctorate.
The program is grounded in the core values of the Lynch School, with coursework focusing on leadership for social justice, school reform, community building, and leadership for learning.
Through a cohort model that emphasizes collaborative learning and support, PSAP aims to create a powerful network of district-level leaders throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and beyond.
The Boston College Leadership Licensure Program is approved by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) for Superintendent/Assistant Superintendent Licensure.
