High Point University has received grants totaling over $20 million to help train the next generation of teachers and principals. 

HPU’s Stout School of Education has been awarded a Supporting Effective Educator Development (SEED) grant, which will provide over $10 million to develop skills for current principals and office leaders.

According to a news release, High Point University is one of only six schools in the country, and the only one in North Carolina, to receive a SEED grant.

Stout School of Education Dean Amy Holcombe says the money will help fund an executive education program for senior-level officials in 18 partner school districts, opening a path to a doctoral degree in educational leadership.

Participating school districts include Guilford, Stokes, Surry, Rockingham, and Winston-Salem/Forsyth.

In September, the U.S. Department of Education awarded the university a five-year, $10 million grant to fund several graduate programs for teachers and principals. It’s the second Teacher Quality Partnership grant HPU has received.
