Apply Now for Avi Chai Sponsorship for The Principals' Center Summer Institute at The Harvard Graduate School of Education!
This summer, AVI CHAI is excited to provide two different types of opportunities for participation in the year-long program that is launched at the Principals' Center at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. We will once again sponsor individual day school leaders to attend one of two institutes – “Art of Leadership” (AOL) for administrators in their first 5 years of leadership, and “Leadership: An Evolving Vision” (LEV) for more veteran (5+ years) administrators. New candidates, as well as those who have previously attended AOL (with or without AVI CHAI sponsorship) in the summer of 2015 or prior, are welcome to apply. In addition, this year a separate, parallel group of school administrative teams (up to 3 members per school) will be sponsored for “Leadership: An Evolving Vision,” the institute for more veteran leaders.
