California University of Pennsylvania's Master of Education in Administrative Program and/or K-12 Principal Certification is the ideal program for working professionals who want to make a difference in education. This is a practice-centered, performance-based program that has been designed to provide a personalized approach in meeting the needs of each student, whether they are seeking a principal's certificate, a master's degree in education, or simply wishes to continue to enhance their teaching and leadership skills.
