Lynch Leadership Academy

Established in 2010 through a generous gift from Carolyn A. and Peter S. Lynch through the Lynch Foundation, the Lynch Leadership Academy (LLA) is a joint collaboration between the Lynch School of Education and the Carroll School of Management. The LLA seeks to establish a national model for strengthening leadership among early- to mid- career school leaders across district, charter, and Catholic urban schools. The Academy is an innovative program that inspires, challenges, and trains urban leaders across sectors to effectively engage and direct dynamic school change. The ultimate goal is to build leadership capacity for effecting high student achievement and new hope for children and families who depend upon the vitality and excellence of urban schools.

The Academy offers a unique cohort model for up to 25 Fellows each year. Over time, a network of Fellows will evolve to provide mutual support in ongoing efforts to improve educational policy and practice. LLA Fellows participate in learning experiences characterized by dynamic interaction among practicing school leaders and scholars/experts representing multiple professions.

The Fellows are drawn from the leadership of Boston’s 134 district schools, 16 charter schools, and the 124 schools of the Archdiocese of Boston. For more information please visit
