The Principal’s Institute provided me with a diverse perspective of leadership. The facilitators at PI are knowledgeable and pushed me to think outside of the box. I feel like I am prepared to lead in any district and at any school because of the work we did individually and as a cohort. I highly recommend the Principal’s Institute for anyone who needs a flexible program that is rooted in real world experiences and authentic leadership settings.

What stood out was the personal commitment to excellence in education demonstrated by every instructor. The Principal Institute brings together the relevance, manageability, and accomplished instructors that make it an exceptional program.

My Principal Institute experience was unprecedented in my 45 or so years of my own education. It provided flexibility, accountability, and a chance for me to take healthy professional risks that I may not have taken otherwise. It offered up time for me to try on my newly developing skill set and know I had guidance just a conversation away. I came away from that a more confident and more capable administrator. It gave me the foundation from which to run a $14 million project successfully.

The Principal Institute was the best choice for me. It was respectful of my time and past experiences, and allowed me to incorporate my current work into my course work while learning about the Principal Standards.
