What Are Participants Saying?

About SCL Cohorts

Cohorts are year-long or multi-year mentorship learning groups led by veteran school leaders with expertise in their field. Cohorts offer the vital support you need to serve your school with excellence. Cohorts offer a combination of content and mentorship through the utilization of online platforms Zoom and Thinkific.

Each cohort will:

  • Participate in monthly sessions with other school leaders to discover new tactics and ask questions about topics important to you. 
  • Receive specialized resources, shared documents, and training material.
  • Stay connected with other leaders dealing with similar situations.
  • Hear from experienced leaders and industry experts.
  • Utilize one-to-one engagement with your group leader.
  • Use each month flexibly for independent work, connecting with peers, and group learning.
  • Experience open dialogue to discuss issues, challenges, and victories.

Grow Together.
