Partner/Professional Development Schools

The Secondary Education Program partners with schools who value the unparalleled leadership, experience, and commitment you’ll gain in the classroom. Our partners provide benefits that help students to impact education throughout their careers.

The Mason Secondary Partner School/PDS Network is comprised of high schools and middle schools in Fairfax County, Prince William County, Loudoun County, and Alexandria City Public Schools. Currently these include the following schools:

Together we focus on our shared responsibility for teacher preparation, faculty development, enhanced grades 6-12 student learning and inquiry driven professional development. Each partner school is served by a University Facilitator (a SEED faculty member) and a Site Facilitator (a school’s teacher or administrator). These partner school structures ensure your timely placement for clinical work with a quality mentor and help you develop relationships that will enhance your professional growth and your future job prospects.
