A year-long residential program and learning community

Our year-long residential leadership academy brings together education leaders to form a peer network committed to better aligning education towards the goals of ecological integrity, economic vitality, and social justice.

Through the ten days of this program, you'll create a learning community exploring Education for Sustainability (EFS), systems thinking, and leadership for school transformation.​ Discover new ways of thinking, new skills to create change and nurture yourself, and innovative ideas and strategies to meet the challenges and seize the opportunities of the future. At the heart of this work is educators supporting one another with a sense of hope, love, and resilience.

Leadership Academy is best suited for PreK–12 practicing educators and leaders, though all types of educators are welcome to apply.

This program includes four gatherings over the course of the 2024–25 school year.
