Event description


Leadership Fellows Program

he job of an independent school administrator is complicated, demanding, and rewarding. Often working directly with various constituent groups, school administrators are confronted with a myriad of complex issues to sort through. 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. This program boasts a strong line-up of guest speakers in the fields of hiring and retention, advancement, finance, facilities, HR, internal and external community relations, and board management. Past guest speakers have included current and former heads of school and board chairs. Each meeting will include an impressive group of experts that will share their knowledge and leadership journeys. 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, skills, and resources important for senior level leadership
