In a field where practitioners are frequently siloed within their schools, grade levels, and sectors, the School Leadership Program brings together students representing a diverse array of public, charter, and independent schools—not only from across the region but also the nation. Under the belief that there is no single solution to today’s school challenges and that all students can learn from one another, our cohort model creates a collaborative learning community that leverages collective expertise. Through lively and intellectually stimulating dialogue, students are able to broaden their perspectives, and achieve new insights. We believe that the sharing of these different – but not disparate – experiences better prepares students for the practical realities of assuming new leadership roles, often outside of their present school. Our accomplished faculty further reflect the immense value of varied experiences for professionals pursuing leadership in education. Graduates have expressed great enthusiasm for this shared cohort model as well as the diversity of our program’s student body.
