Empowering Leaders to Improve Outcomes
Students deserve excellent and equitable schools, highly effective teachers and leaders, and welcoming and culturally responsive school communities that foster their growth as intellectuals and individuals. LLA empowers school leaders to create these conditions through our flagship Fellowship program.
Developed with research-based best practices, the Fellowship combines rigorous professional development with individualized coaching—helping sitting and aspiring principals to improve outcomes, increase opportunities, and disrupt inequity in underserved communities. The integration of coaching and professional development supports Fellows in implementing new learning immediately and effectively in their schools, culminating in transformative change.
Fellows strengthen their instructional expertise, improve their executive management skills, and join a continually expanding network of mission-driven leaders who collaborate across sectors to transform our communities.

“My LLA Leadership Effectiveness Director has really helped me to put into practice our beliefs, but also to figure out who I am, what I want for Boston, what I want for our kids, and what I want for Catholic education. The cross-sector work is so important, and it is just scratching the surface of what’s beginning for Boston.”
