Great schools are led by great principals. New Leaders for New
Schools is a national non-profit that ensures high academic
achievement for every student by attracting and preparing outstanding
leaders and supporting the performance of the urban public schools
they lead. New Leaders currently has 567 leaders serving over 280,000
students across the nation. Additional information about New Leaders
for New Schools can be found on our website: www.nlns.org.
New Leaders aggressively recruits extremely talented individuals to
become urban public school principals. Through a combination of
rigorous coursework delivered by nationally recognized experts, a
full-time year-long residency with a strong mentor principal, and
intensive work with successful veteran principals, New Leaders get
unique preparation to enter the urban principalship. At the end of the
year, we help place our participants in urban public schools and
provide them with ongoing support, networking, and a lifelong
community of peers.
New Leaders commit to serving in their school districts for 6 years as
an urban public school principal. In return, New Leaders receive
approximately $100,000 in coursework, instruction, and support at no
cost to them. Additionally, residents are paid directly by the school
districts or charter systems for which they work and receive the same
salaries and health benefits as assistant principals.
Our New Leaders are diverse in every respect and come from varied
backgrounds. However, successful candidates have:

students achieve academically at high levels,
