New Leaders Academy

Superintendents, assistant or associate superintendents, and directors in diocesan offices of Catholic school education with 0 – 3 years’ experience are strongly encouraged to register for the New Leaders Academy on Saturday, October 19 and Sunday morning, October 20.

The New Leaders Academy provides innovative, timely and relevant information and practices. While the Academy focuses primarily on new or nearly new (arch) diocesan leaders, it is also an excellent professional development opportunity for aspiring superintendents who are currently employed at the (arch) diocesan level and seasoned veterans seeking a refresher.
