Program Director, Philadelphia Academy of School Leaders

Posted by Philadelphia Academy of School Leaders on September 24, 2019


The Philadelphia Academy of School Leaders, Inc. (School Leaders) was created in 2015 based on the belief that Philadelphia’s strength as a city depends on its ability to deliver quality educational opportunities for all 215,000 students in its district, charter, and faith-based schools.

Realizing this vision requires strong leadership in our schools.  Recognizing that leadership is the catalyst for change, School Leaders invests in leaders across district, charter, and faith-based schools in Philadelphia.  Our programs develop principals – and the system leaders who supervise and support principals – by providing hands-on, relevant, and actionable training and cultivating collaboration among a network of outstanding peers.  We provide school and system leaders with the necessary tools, skills, and networks to elevate their performance and improve school and student outcomes.  Now in our fifth year, School Leaders serves nearly one-third of Philadelphia’s principals, the critical mass needed to drive systemic change for our city’s schools and students.


The Program Director will play an instrumental role in supporting School Leaders’ vision of a highly effective principal in each Philadelphia district, charter, and faith-based school who ensures every student is prepared for college, career, and life.  The Program Director will report to the Deputy Executive Director and serve as a member of the program team. The Program Director will design, lead, and implement a portfolio of School Leaders’ programs to ensure participants experience engaging and impactful leadership development opportunities that build their capacity to improve schools and dramatically increase student outcomes.
