Catholic schools are different by design and do more and teach more than other schools. The training of Catholic school leaders must be targeted to this difference and not simply defer to modern secular school leadership programs. Something more and something different is required.
Ave Maria’s M.Ed. is designed to exert maximum influence in confident response to the challenges facing Catholic schools and the amazing opportunities now available to them as the common culture continues to flounder.
Our Program enthusiastically supports and seeks to further the creative work being done around the country by other groups and initiatives currently revitalizing faithful Catholic education and bringing the Good News of Christ to the world.
