To ensure a strong continuum of school leaders, The Leadership for Educational Achievement Foundation, Inc. (LEAF), NYSIR and Capital Region BOCES offer the Future Superintendents Academy, a comprehensive program to prepare high level administrators aspiring to become superintendents in the next few years.

The Future Superintendents Academy requires a year-long commitment. Participants are required to attend a summer institute and eight weekend sessions throughout the year. The program includes critical topics relevant to the superintendency such as communications; change, systems and planning; governance; financial leadership; human resources; instructional leadership; and the search and interview process.

Courses are taught by LEAF’s cadre of highly experienced faculty, most of whom are, or have been, superintendents themselves. The program is facilitated by two former superintendents, Dr. Robert Bradley, Mrs. Mary Alice Price and Mr. Alan Pole who assist with projects and coach Fellows throughout the year.

This is a unique opportunity. Approximately 30% of program graduates have accepted superintendencies in New York State since the program's inception. Each year, a select number of candidates are accepted into the program.
