North Central College and INCS Partner to Provide Tuition Discount for Charter Teachers & Leaders

Posted on: March 29, 2022

North Central College’s School of Education and Health Sciences and the School of Graduate and Professional Studies have forged a partnership with Illinois Network of Charter Schools (INCS) to promote character education.

Charter school teachers and champions who are interested in earning a principal certification or taking on larger leadership roles will receive a 20 percent discount on tuition for specific NCC Master’s programs.

Through a 4.5-year, $3.2 million grant—the College’s largest private grant ever—North Central has launched character initiatives designed to have a lasting impact on educators, aspiring leaders, and administrators. These initiatives focus on social, emotional, and ethical competencies with a goal to nurture and foster Cultures of Character in the school systems in which they serve.

“The mission and vision of the Illinois Network of Charter Schools is to leverage the charter school model as a catalyst to transform lives and communities. This aligns well with North Central’s Cultures of Character Initiatives,” said Abiódún Gòkè-Pariolá, provost and vice president for academic affairs at North Central College. This partnership creates a synergy which benefits both educators and students, as well as contribute to flourishing communities.”
