Program Overview


Supporting the learning and development of independent school leaders is a strategic priority for CAIS that supports school improvement and innovation. Recent CAIS research indicates a growing need for motivated, diverse, and expert leadership. The Leadership Praxis, a framework of knowledge and competencies needed to be a successful independent school leader, reflects the Indicators of Effective Practice highlighted in the 2021 CAIS Accreditation Standards. The Praxis has guided the structure of the Leadership Institute, ensuring that it is intentional, comprehensive and organized to meet the needs of aspiring leaders.

  • All modules have 10 hours of programming.
  • Participants are invited to addresses by Heads of Schools being recognized for their leadership contributions.
  • Informal network times are built into the synchronous schedule time.
  • The modules are open to faculty and staff from CAIS and non-CAIS schools. 
  • Participants who complete 10 modules in the CAIS Diploma Program will earn the CAIS Diploma in Independent School Leadership. New participants should note that completion of the CAIS Foundations for School Leadership Program: Designing a Practice is also required.
  • Typical capacity for modules is 20-25 participants and depends upon each module.
