The Fellowship Difference

Results You Can Count On

Our approach is built upon the largest evidence base of effective principal preparation in the country. We prepare equity-focused leaders who get results where it matters most: in schools, for students.

CENTERED ON EQUITY

The Fellowship is uniquely designed with leaders of color, for teachers of color. You develop the skills to explore, understand, and lead with a culturally-responsive and social justice mindset in your school community. 

FOR FULL-TIME TEACHERS

The Fellowship is completed in your school, with coursework online. Our job-embedded approach prepares you for the principal role at the same time you fulfill the certification and residency requirements.

Fast-Track to Certification in 40+ States

The Fellowship offers programs with or without a master's degree through our network of accredited college and university partners.
