Principal Karrie Miller recently completed the Principal Candidate Program offered in the Diocese of Erie.
According to the February 2020 issue of Faith Magazine, in 2018 the Diocese of Erie’s Catholic Schools Office, in partnership with Gannon University, initiated the new Principal Candidate Program.
The goal was to identify and train teachers with leadership potential so they could become assistant principals or principals in Catholic schools in the 13-county diocese. Candidates in the program earn Pennsylvania principal certification.
“The program not only strengthens student performance,” says Jim Gallagher, Superintendent of Catholic schools. “The focus is on cultivating leadership in the schools, which ultimately impacts everything from curriculum to Catholic identity, academics and the vitality of the schools.”
