Description

CATDC Leadership Fellows

APPLICATION DEADLINE IS OCTOBER 11TH

The job of an independent school administrator is complicated, demanding, and unique. Too often, school administrators feel isolated and alone as they confront the ever-changing challenges in their work. Even as they move beyond the early years of school leadership, school administrators need support, mentorship, and new knowledge to be effective and personally-fulfilled.

This year-long fellowship for experienced educators from Northern and Southern California supports the unique demands of independent school leaders – the only program of its kind in California! Facilitated by two experienced, long-time Heads of School, the Leadership Fellows Program offers practical knowledge and skills about independent school leadership, as well as professional and personal support. Guest speakers in the fields of advancement, finance, and facilities, HR, community relations: internal (including Board) and external, and managing relationships. Case studies, problem-based discussions, and relevant readings will challenge participants to reflect on their roles and encourage the development of their skills for their work in their current schools.

Program Goals:

  • To provide experienced K-12 administrators with the knowledge and skills important for senior level leadership
  • To address topics unique to independent school administration, including topics of school governance/Board relations, development and institutional advancement, independent school branding and enrollment management, and school finance
  • To develop and strengthen relationships and networks of support among school leaders

Note: Participants should be experienced school leaders with at least 5 years in independent school administrative roles. Leaders in academic (deans, division directors, curriculum leaders) and non-academic areas (admissions, development, communications, business office) in both Northern and Southern California are welcome!
