The University of Connecticut Administrator Preparation Program (UCAPP) is a school leadership preparation program in the Neag School of Education. UCAPP’s mission is to prepare highly qualified school leaders to promote equity and excellence in schools throughout Connecticut.

UCAPP currently has 90 students enrolled in three distinct delivery models. The Traditional model is the original university-based course model which has graduated more than 60 cohorts in its 26 years of existence. The Preparing Leaders for Urban Schools (PLUS) model is a pipeline development initiative in its third year aimed at preparing urban school leaders in the Hartford and New Haven school systems. The Residency model is an intensive model which focuses on preparing turnaround principal candidates to lead schools needing dramatic improvement.
