Graduate School for Army Chaplain Corps Professional Development
The Graduate School for Army Chaplain Corps Professional Development develops, manages, conducts, and evaluates Professional Development education on behalf of the US Army Chief of Chaplains and the US Army Institute for Religious Leadership (USA-IRL) Commandant. The mission of Graduate School is to develop adaptable and integrated Chaplain Educational programs that promote competence, character, and commitment in order to form Religious Support (RS) professionals at echelon who provide exceptional Religious Support to a complex and constantly changing Army.

Building upon PME foundations, Graduate School programs are synchronized with the Religious Leader Academy (RLA) and the Noncommissioned Officer Academy (NCOA).
