Master of Arts in Leadership: Classical Schools

Gordon College offers the only graduate leadership program in New England that applies the strengths of a Christian liberal arts tradition to the classical Christian school administrators. 

Building on the original Leadership program designed for administrators at traditional Christian schools, this new track addresses the specific needs of the flourishing classical Christian school movement.

"I am thrilled to have a hand in developing a special track in Gordon’s Masters in Leadership program for teachers and administrators in the burgeoning movement of classical-Christian schools, and I can think of no more evocative place to launch each classical cohort than Orvieto (Italy), where I have lived for much of two decades." — John Skillen, Senior Advisor for Classical School Initiatives

"Cultivating the next generation of classical school leaders is a great need as classical, liberal arts education expands around the U.S. and the world. The MA in Leadership for Classical Schools at Gordon College will help meet this critical need and advance the renewal." — Christopher Perrin, MDiv, Ph.D., CEO with Classical Academic Press

"Gordon College is well equipped to provide this level of leadership within the classical movement. They have the experience and the knowledge, as well as the alignment with our program. The need for classical Christian headmasters has never been greater." — David Goodwin, President of the Association of Classical Christian Schools
