Program Overview

The Courageous Journey™ is the only state approved superintendent endorsement program in Michigan.

Developed by MASA, the program offers school leaders an intensive experience with the application of transformational leadership processes in school settings where they serve. Focusing on Seven Points of Learning critical to effective performance as a superintendent, the Courageous Journey™ is designed to extend beyond basic administrator certification and provide school leaders an opportunity to distinguish themselves as exemplars of professional practice in the role of superintendent.

The purpose of the program is to provide aspiring, new, and experienced superintendents with information, tools, strategies, and other resources to:

  1. Improve student outcomes; 
  2. Work effectively with staff, school boards, and communities on these missions; 
  3. Shape leading edge change; and 
  4. Build highly adaptive learning organizations.
