About the Program

Our Assistant Principals are on the frontlines of education every day and are a critical piece of what makes our schools so special and successful. We are launching a leadership development program targeted at aspiring leaders who share our vision of educational equity and have the ability to drive our ambitious growth goals. This fellowship is an opportunity to work with a cohort of like-minded colleagues, play a significant role in the growth of our network, and prepare as a future leader of a KIPP NJ school.


  • We are committed to developing each member of this cohort into the exemplary, inspired leaders that will give our students what they need and one day lead schools in our growing network.
  • We offer an apprenticeship-style program grounded in real world practice that pairs you with an exceptional school leader in one of our network schools.
  • We develop you as a leader through observation and coaching while you manage a team and lead achievement results for our students in an Assistant Principal capacity.
  • In conjunction with your fellowship, members of this cohort receive ongoing network-wide professional development and the support of other fellows and leaders where you’re able to reflect on what you’ve learned and share best practices.
