The Path to Leadership program is owned and operated by the Michigan Association of Secondary School Principals (MASSP). It is the state’s only alternative route to earning a PK-12 administrator certificate. Our goal is to provide candidates with a PK-12 administrator certificate at an affordable cost and in a manageable time frame through a program developed by principals, for principals.
