Welcome to the District Administration Leadership Institute’s academies – where we equip and empower district leaders to lead with purpose. Our academies are a unique blend of strategy, collaboration, and cutting-edge innovative thinking that provides the tools to understand and implement best practices.

National Superintendents Academy


Learn from highly successful superintendents and executives who share the essential systems and leadership philosophies they have used to significantly increase performance across large organizations. You will complete the program equipped with a solid mastery of the complex academic, political and logistical rigors inherent in running a K-12 school district – communicating effectively with your school board, managing a large organization, and building an inspired, empowered and accountable culture that supports student achievement and leads to continuous growth and improvement.

Motivated Participants

Your cohort will comprise fellow high-performing leaders in education, as well as executives from the private sector and other not-for-profit organizations. A rigorous selection process and the limited number of seats for each cohort ensure that you will be learning and working toward your goals among individuals who are driven, successful and eager to advance their careers.

Ongoing Support

To ensure the success of our recent graduates, we provide support throughout the placement process and the first full year on the job. We understand the challenges that may arise in your new position, and we’re here to help our graduates with a smooth transition. The National Superintendents Academy will monitor the progress of graduates, tracking those placed in superintendencies, their longevity in position, and student achievement results. This data will be used to inform and continually improve the program curriculum.

Benefits for Your District

Participation in the National Superintendents Academy program not only prepares you to move on to the superintendency, it will give you a better understanding of your current district superintendent’s role, enable you to better support their administration, and help you to perform more effectively in your current role. This forward-focused mindset will help you retain and attract more rising stars to your district.
