Classes Apprenticeship


This is a 3-part training for individuals aspiring to become school principals. The first part is a 4 day summer institute where participants work on simulated school projects intended to mimic the realities of an actual principalship. The second component, the residency, involves a ten-month apprenticeship with an experienced principal, along with bi-weekly leadership development seminars. Finally, the planning summer allows participants an opportunity to transition to their school leadership position. The first and third components of this experience are also offered separately, as the Foundations of Principal Supervision and the New Principal Institute, respectively.
