Approach

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

Principal Wanda Vazquez, El Puente Academy

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 586 aspiring leaders and supported 13 schools systems in building their own leadership programs.
