The REEP Business Fellowship for School Leaders — a graduate certificate at the Jones Graduate School of Business — is an exceptional one-year business training program from a top 25 nationally ranked business school. This program is designed for K-12 educators that have at least two years of teaching experience and who desire to learn how to apply business theories to the public school setting. This program is geared towards educators who already hold a master's degree and are looking for focused managerial and leadership training. At the completion of the REEP Business Fellowship Program, REEP graduates are ready to run K-12 schools as effective CEOs.

REEP Business Fellowship students attend classes side by side with educators who represent several Houston school districts such as Houston ISD, Spring Branch ISD, Alief ISD, Alvin ISD, Aldine ISD, Humble ISD, Katy ISD, Fort Bend ISD, Cy-Fair ISD, Galena Park ISD, Clear Creek ISD, KIPP, YES Prep, etc. Broad diversity among classroom peers creates compelling discussion which allows students to learn as much from high caliber colleagues as faculty professors.


“As educators, we can never know enough about building effective teams, coaching, interpersonal relationships, etc. The higher you get, the more important it is. The REEP classes were awesome and practical. One of the best aspects was the relationship building and networking opportunities.”
 - Brian Johnson, REEP Cohort 3/Class of 2012  

“I feel as though I’ve learned more about myself, education and leadership in cthe past few weeks than in the past few years! The REEP classes have opened my eyes to the importance of not only recognizing my talents but selling them as well.”
 - Shelene Livas, REEP Cohort 3/Class of 2012  

“REEP was the only program in Houston that offered me an opportunity to become a part of an innovative learning environment that connected education and business. The best part of the whole program is the caliber of my peers. REEP participants are interested in finding solutions to the urgent problems schools face now while making sure the future classes of students benefit from these changes, too.”
