The Aspiring Superintendents’ Academy provides a rich, collegial cohort opportunity for school leaders who wish to become Minnesota School Superintendents.  The Academy focuses on developing a professional practice in the superintendency that is grounded on evidence-based knowledge, skills, and dispositions that contribute to successful capstone leadership.  Sessions are taught by experienced, effective school leaders and each participant will be paired with a mentor for guidance during the cohort and beyond.

Participation will be limited to 30; applications will be screened for the highest quality candidates.  Those selected for participation in the program will be outstanding, high-performing leaders whose next logical career moves would be to the superintendency.

This program results in certification that will support transition into their first position as superintendent.

Academy will be 10 days in duration—and will include an additional seven days of monitored independent study and online learning.  Every participant will complete a skill assessment as part of the orientation process and will have an individual learning plan to guide their learning.

  • January 22-23
  • March 18-19
  • May 20-21
  • September 16-17
