Texas School Administrator & Principal Certification

The McNeil Educational Foundation’s Texas Principal Certification Program was created and gained the State of Texas approval in May of 2002.

Our faculty of high-achieving principals, principal supervisors, educational leadership professors, played a role in the gaining of multiple commendations during our 5 Year Review from the Texas Education Agency. Proudly, hundreds of successful McNeil graduates are currently working as school administrators in school districts, charter schools, and universities around the world.

The 21st Century Leadership Principal Preparation Program aims to provide a realistic and meaningful practicum experience for aspiring school administrators who possess a Master’s degree, with an emphasis in Educational Leadership and/or Counseling; and, who have yet to participate in a comprehensive school administrative internship focusing on the Texas principal certification requirements.
