Meet the Alumni

A Network of School Leaders

The Lynch Leadership Academy is working to build a network of principals and school leaders throughout the city of Boston across the district public, charter, and Catholic school sectors. The first cohort of alumni completed the Lynch Leadership Academy required course of study in June of 2012. Now, as alumni, they have forged relations and support systems to improve the K-12 education climate of the city. The network of Lynch Leadership alumni will continue to grow each year as new cohorts begin and complete the program.
