CPELL is a federally funded Department of Education/Office of English Language Acquisition grant program (grant # T365Z12006) located within the Loyola University Chicago School of Education.
CPELL’s brand new, ISBE-approved Masters with dual ESL and teacher leader endorsements is exclusive to Loyola and available with a 60% Loyola tuition discount.
The two previously existing CPELL programs are still available with a 50% Loyola tuition discount.
All three grant-related educational programs are available for eligible partner school district administrators, faculty, or staff. A valid teaching certificate is required for all programs.
District partners with two or more CPELL scholars benefit not only from graduate educational programs, but through delivery of data-driven professional development and parent programming, building capacity and enriching the entire educational community.
