Our Mission, Vision & Values

The Lynch Leadership Academy aims to enhance the lives of urban children and families by strengthening the leadership capacity of urban K‐12 school leaders from Catholic, charter, and district schools.

Our mission is to develop the leadership capacity of school leaders in order to close the achievement gap and ensure all students attend and graduate from college.

Our vision is to be the leading executive management and leadership development program for school leaders in high needs communities. We will efficiently and creatively grow the program to replicate the model in other cities, becoming a knowledge resource and innovation center for leadership training and school transformation nationwide. Further, our program will be widely recognized for improving student outcomes by building the leadership capacity of school leaders.

 

Lynch Leadership Academy Fellows engage in cohort building, shared action research, coaching, and collaborative networking within and across sectors. The curriculum centers around our core competencies:

  • Instructional Leadership: Enhance principals' capacity to promote instructional leadership across district, charter, and Catholic schools;
  • Human Capital Management: Enhance principals’ capacity to improve staff effectiveness, learning, and teaching across district, charter, and Catholic schools;
  • Systems & Operations: Develop principals’ operational skills and systems knowledge across district, charter, and Catholic schools;
  • Problem Solving: Increase principals’ skills to use data to inform decisions and instruction;
  • Self-Awareness: Develop principals’ skills in distributed leadership and ability to manage up; and
  • Interpersonal Relationships: Improve quality of relationships between principals and students, staff, families, and other stakeholders.
