CATDC Leadership Fellows
The job of an independent school administrator is complicated, demanding, and unique. Too often, school administrators feel isolated and alone as they confront the ever-changing challenges in their work. Even as they move beyond the early years of school leadership, school administrators need support, mentorship, and new knowledge to be effective and personally-fulfilled.
The CATDC is thrilled to offer this new year-long fellowship program to support experienced independent school leaders – the first of its kind in California! Facilitated by two experienced, long-time heads of school, this program offers practical knowledge and skills about independent school leadership, as well as professional and personal support. The program’s content will build on the experiences and backgrounds of the participants. Guest speakers in the fields of advancement, finance, and facilities, HR, community relations: internal (including board) and external, and managing relationships. Case studies, problem-based discussions, and relevant readings will challenge participants to reflect on their roles and encourage the development of their skills for their work in their current schools.
We expect that once the Fellows Cohort is formed, there will be an annual opportunity for the group to reconvene for additional leadership support and training.
Unfortunately, we are no longer accepting applications. A huge thanks to everyone who took the time to apply for this special program!
We have secured a special CATDC rate at a nearby hotel for the night prior to each meeting (Dec. 1-2, 2016, Feb. 9-10, 2017, and April 27-28, 2017).
