Aspiring Leader Program

A Partnership with Concordia University

Dear Leander ISD teachers,

Have you been thinking about what’s next in your leadership journey? Then this program might be right for you!

Through a unique partnership between Concordia University Texas and Leander Independent School District, high potential LISD teachers have the opportunity to earn their Master of Education degree with a specialization in Educational Administration. Unlike other programs, the LISD Aspiring Leader curriculum offers district-specific coursework, preparing students to advance in their careers with a distinctly LISD-oriented approach. Classes are held in the evenings and/or weekends at Cedar Park High School and taught by Concordia professors and Leander ISD district and campus administrators.


  • To facilitate professional growth for participants that positively impact current and future leadership roles within the district
  • To build a core group of well-prepared future school leaders who can successfully transition into positions as assistant principals
