Program Overview

The Texas Superintendents’ Certification Institute provides participants with a certification program that requires minimal on-site attendance.

The program is formatted as 10 class sessions (approximately once per month). Each module requires an opening and closing session facilitation via live Zoom on a Saturday; the remaining coursework is completed conveniently online, and includes interaction with the other participants and the course facilitator.

The TSCI curriculum is written and facilitated by experienced superintendents and central office staff, and is fully aligned to the TExES test standards and objectives. In addition, all program participants are required to have campus or district-level experience and an accomplishment record, thereby providing a real-world perspective to each course.

A real-world perspective and the incorporation of best practices are guided by an advisory committee of highly-experienced, knowledgeable administrators.


TSCI is approved by the Texas Education Agency and is subject to any changes mandated by the State Board of Educator Certification as well as other necessary program adjustments.
