School Leadership

The Leadership Academy reminds us of the urgency of now, that we must make sure students are academically and social-emotionally prepared to take on challenges they will face when they leave school

Wanda Vazquez, NYC Department of Education

Great school systems need a bench of great school leaders. We model our work with aspiring and sitting principals on what research and experience have taught us: School leaders can best improve and transform schools when they have learned through guided, hands-on experiences how to develop and implement a vision, and build a strong school culture, collaborate with teachers and families, all with a focus on creating equitable access to opportunities for each student. We take a systemic approach to addressing local school leadership needs. We have directly developed close to 600 aspiring leaders in our flagship program in New York City and have supported 15 schools systems in building and launching their own leadership programs.
