The Philadelphia Academy of School Leaders is supported by strong partnerships with variety of education organizations that play an important role in our strategic development, impact, and growth.

Sector leadership:

Leaders from the traditional public, charter, and parochial sectors of Philadelphia are united in their commitment to developing highly-effective school leaders. This unique collaboration across three critical sectors in the city’s education landscape is the foundation for our success. The collaboration includes partnerships with:

  • School District of Philadelphia
  • School District of Philadelphia Charter Schools Office
  • Archdiocese of Philadelphia
  • Faith in the Future
  • Independence Mission Schools
  • Philadelphia Charters for Excellence
  • Various charter management organizations and individual charter schools

“For students to achieve their fullest potential, we need a strong leader in every school. At the same time we know that principals have a challenging set of responsibilities. That is why we are actively engaged in this collaborative effort to support and develop effective school leaders in forums where they can learn with and from one another.”

Dr. William R. Hite
Superintendent of the School District of Philadelphia
