Courses for the six required Curriculum Strands are distributed over a twelve month period, and serve as the integration and synthesis of on-site courses and supplemental reading and assignments. Our goal is to create transformative school leaders who will change the face of education. Courses are taught by both national and local faculty which raises the level of content and teaching. Marian University Academy scholars are prepared to create high quality schools where they are needed most. The Mentor Program begins at the conclusion of the coursework, and with the candidates beginning their school leader position.
