Program Associate, Phila. Academy of School Leaders

Posted by Philadelphia Academy of School Leaders on May 10, 2022

The Philadelphia Academy of School Leaders (“School Leaders”) is a nonprofit organization that develops, engages, and retains principals and system leaders who transform schools, dramatically improve student outcomes, and drive systemic change to prepare all Philadelphia students for college, career, and life.

Our fundamental belief is that Philadelphia’s principals and school system leaders change students’ lives. Through an investment in results-driven leadership development experiences, the Philadelphia Academy of School Leaders empowers individuals to drive student outcomes and advance equity in Philadelphia’s district, charter, and faith-based schools.

Our flagship experience, the Neubauer Fellowship in Educational Leadership, provides proven principals with the resources and guidance to sharpen their leadership capacities. The Fellowship is a transformative two-year experience that develops critical leadership skills needed to elevate school performance and student outcomes in their schools and across the city. Fellows receive best-in-class professional development and build relationships with a network of outstanding peers who share strategies and problem-solve with one another.

As Neubauer Fellowship alumni are promoted to principal supervisor roles, they join Leaders of Leaders, designed to provide the tools needed to effectively supervise and develop principals, improve principal practice, and increase student outcomes. Fellowship alumni also serve as coaches to promising principals in our Performance Partners experience, where high-potential principals deepen the instructional skills necessary to coach teachers, resulting in improved teacher practice and student outcomes.


The Program Associate will actively contribute towards School Leaders’ vision of achieving educational equity in Philadelphia so every child in every neighborhood attends a school that prepares all students to attain their dreams. This requires a highly effective principal in every Philadelphia’s district, charter, and faith-based school who ensures every student is prepared for college, career, and life. The Program Associate will perform a diverse range of responsibilities including operational, logistical, and administrative tasks to support program efficiency and effectiveness. The Program Associate will help ensure that program participants experience engaging and impactful leadership development opportunities that build their capacity to improve schools and dramatically increase student outcomes.
