“In most states, this approval will allow someone who has been a teacher for
years, who has always wanted to earn a doctorate and become a school
psychologist, to accomplish that goal,” said Laren Winter, Ed.D., LSP, LPC,
LMFT, faculty chair for Capella University’s School Psychology specialization.
“This approval provides recognition of our program by a state that gives
approval to programs that are fully aligned at the national level, and is
recognized by many other states as a top rating.”

Aligned with national curriculum standards for school psychology, Capella’s
Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) in School Psychology  program is the first and
only school psychology PsyD offered online. People who choose this program are
typically pursuing supervisory careers within school psychology; higher
