This program is open to all NYS Day School General Studies teachers and principals. While other Day School personnel may apply, such as Judaic studies teachers, there is a cost differential. 

There are spots for 20 candidates in this program per cohort. Candidates must have an NYS recognized BA/BS degree, and be prepared to participate in a full 36-credit graduate school program.

The GRE Exam is no longer required to apply to this program. 

When and where does the program take place?

This SBL cohort program meets for six semesters over the course of two years. Cohort participants will register for 6 credits per semester. The scholarship is funded on a semester-by-semester basis, pending federal funding.

Class meeting dates will be scheduled for Tuesday evenings in the Fall and Spring semesters and Tuesday and Thursday evenings in the Summer semesters. Classes begin at 6pm. No classes will be scheduled on Jewish holidays. All classes will take place at Brooklyn College.

What is the cost? 

This program is funded through the Federal ESSA Title IIA program. Pending continued funding, tuition will be paid in full for NYS Day School General Studies staff. All related fees, i.e. application, textbooks, travel, etc. will be the responsibility of the participant. Other day school personnel will have to self-fund, keeping in mind that tuition rates are residency related.

Where can I find more information?

Learn more about the Brooklyn College M.S.Ed. in Educational Leadership.  Please note that the NYS Day School Cohort will not follow the exact program path as described on the Brooklyn College website. To maintain the cohort structure, transfer credits will not be accepted.
