Principal Preparation for Current CPS Assistant Principals


Candidates admitted to this program will earn a Ed.D. in Administration & Supervision and Illinois Superintendent’s Endorsement through Loyola University’s Chicago’s CPS Doctoral Principal Preparation Program.

The CPS Ed.D. Program in Administration & Supervision is designed for practicing CPS Assistant Principals holding a General Administrative endorsement.

Loyola University Chicago’s CPS Ed.D.

Ed.D. candidates will be assigned a coach in the first semester of the program.  The coaches support candidates as they meet CPS Principal Competencies. Coaches selected to work with Loyola Ed.D. candidates are former urban leaders with a history of transforming urban schools.

The CPS Ed.D.
