North Central College

Located in Naperville, North Central College offers both undergraduate and graduate degree programs in Education. North Central’s Educational Leadership degree, with eligibility for principal endorsement, focuses on the moral purpose of building the capacity of our graduate candidates so that they can go forward and bring Cultures of Character practices into the heart of their school communities. The Program is grounded in: 


  • Program-specific leadership virtues

  • The development of leader character

  • Cultivating practical wisdom


The emphasis on character combined with culture-building allows future leaders to not only design curricular efforts for character education and Social Emotional Learning, but also extend this work throughout all aspects of the school environment.
