School of Educational Leadership
In the School of Educational Leadership (SoEL), we offer graduate degrees that prepare professionals in schools and other organizations to lead with purpose, skill, and integrity. We invite you to bring your whole self to the task of learning including your faith and your sense of vocation. In our rigorous online programs, you will learn to use research and theory to improve professional practice. You will learn to think critically about complex situations, use data strategically, and act thoughtfully and with integrity.
We designed our SoEL masters degrees to help you shape yourself into an expert practitioner in higher education or in K-12 schools. Through our Doctor of Education, you become a scholar-practitioner who can interpret current research and apply it to leadership practice in a wide variety of organizations. Our goal is to equip you to serve others by providing you with opportunities to enhance your gifts and talents through reflective practice, and in so doing find meaning and purpose in your work.
ACU's faculty of Christian scholars and professionals are the foundation for student success. Each faculty member is an expert in their field, and at building supportive relationships with ACU students.
The School of Educational Leadership is part of College of Graduate and Professional Studies, the academic body for our online graduate programs. Our programs help students develop a deeper understanding of their identity, formation, and calling as they journey to become whole persons in their work and in their community. Embedded within Christ-centered communities, students of ACU Graduate and Professional Studies programs will grow in their discipline through a commitment to the Christian virtues of intellectual curiosity and rigor, hospitality, humility, integrity, authenticity, and perseverance.
