Achievement First: Public Charter Schools (Residency Program)

The Residency Program for School Leadership is designed for stellar assistant principals, coaches and teacher leaders who are interested in serving as the next generation of principals for the highest-need public schools in our communities. Principals are one of the most important levers for impacting student achievement. Developing strong leaders for the highest-need schools in our communities is a critical step toward reversing our national education crisis. As part of a groundbreaking collaboration between traditional public school districts and charter schools, the year-long Residency Program utilizes the medical school rotation model to combine experiential residencies, cutting-edge workshops and intense individualized coaching, leveraging the best practices of high-performing public charter schools and of the highest-impact principals in traditional district schools. Residents will gain distinct experience in what they will do as school leaders and be deemed placement-ready by the program.
