Aspiring Superintendents Academy® Hybrid Learning Model

Aspiring Hybrid Program leads and participants

This standards-based professional learning opportunity will provide leaders with an insightful blend of theory and practice utilizing a combination of in-person sessions, online webinars and a virtual platform. The sessions are led by highly skilled, nationally recognized educational leaders and mentors. Cohort members will participate in experiential learning tasks designed to expand their understanding of self and the critical skills necessary for success as a superintendent.

Members of the academy cohort will explore problems of practice, simulations, and engage in a series of learning experiences culminating in a Capstone Project. The goal of the academy is to produce transformational superintendents rather than traditional administrators and prepare leaders to be successful in the role of superintendent. Graduates of the academy will be equipped to lead diverse future-ready school systems with creativity, vision, and a commitment to equity and excellence.
