The Experiential Program for Preparing School Principals (EPPSP) is an innovative and experience-based master's program that prepares its graduates for the many challenges facing school administrators.


EPPSP students complete a two-year, 36-hour intensive master of science degree program. Students must stay active in the program each consecutive semester and summer until completion. Students can earn six credit hours in each of the classes. Classes meet every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 7:00-9:30 p.m.

With the assistance of a Lilly Endowment grant, Dr. Joe Nygaard introduced EPPSP in 1982 as a new and radically different program for preparing school administrators. In 1998, the program became a Master of Science in Education degree. EPPSP is a leading principal preparation program with graduates throughout Indiana and the United States.

The EPPSP program is designed to incorporate all aspects of the principalship training model into a six-semester experience, allowing students to work in a cohort group environment.
