The School Leadership Program embraces the mission and aims of Brigham Young University and develops competent educational leaders of faith, intellect, and character who have a vision and a compelling sense of purpose for the continuous improvement of schools and enhancement of learning for all.

In the graduate program students will acquire the knowledge and skills to facilitate, motivate, and lead high levels of learning for all students and teachers. 

The curriculum offered to our students focuses on developing effective school leaders, based on current research. The EDLF faculty members work to align this curriculum with local priorities and accreditation standards and to prepare students to pass the state-required Administrative Praxis Examination (ETS 0411) .
