A cohort is a group of students who work through a curriculum together to achieve the same academic degree. Because they are accepted into the same program, take their classes together, and graduate together, students in cohorts tend to form a strong support system and professional network that benefit them during their degree program and beyond.
Congratulations to cohort members CJ Port (Vista High) and Tanya Johnson (Bear Valley MS), who met in the 2011-2013 cohort and are planning their wedding for the summer of 2013!
The Educational Administration program at California State University San Marcos is NCATE accredited. Our Superintendent’s Roundtable will meet April 10th, 2013 to inform our practice.
