Leadership: Finding Your Signature
Our Administrator course provides a comprehensive preparation for adults who wish to serve in leadership positions within Montessori schools. Montessori schools benefit from leadership that aligns with the Montessori educational approach.
The Administrator course is a hybrid course that consists of 200 hours face-to-face and 175 hours online coursework, and is designed to fit the schedules of full-time educational leaders. The face-to-face hours will occur during one weekend seminar during the winter/spring semester, a two-week summer session, followed by a nine-month practicum during which the student serves in a leadership capacity in a school setting. Three additional weekend seminars occur during the practicum year.
The face-to-face courses will include some online work as well. The online work is distributed throughout the entire 17 months and the face-to-face time is scheduled as indicated by the course calendar.
Graduates of the MECR Administrator course may need to complete additional coursework in order to be director qualified or prepared for principal licensure in the State of Colorado.
MECR is affiliated by the American Montessori Society (AMS). MECR is accredited by the Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE) for all it’s Teacher Preparation Courses. MACTE does not accredit Administrator Courses.
