Meet Your School’s Needs?

Year-Long ATLIS Leadership Institute Guides Tech Leaders While Schools Continue to Evolve

The ATLIS Leadership Institute is no longer accepting applications for the 2022-2023 Cohort. We welcome inquiries about joining our next cohort that will launch in June of 2023. Email: Susan Davis, ATLIS Leadership Institute Director, [email protected]

  • Level-up your leadership skills as the impact of technology on education continues to evolve.

  • Go beyond DIY professional development.

  • Invest in your leadership growth to support your school’s mission.

  • Practice intentional leadership, hone your skills, and expand your capacity to make an impact.

  • Connect with and learn from a diverse community of leaders from independent schools.

Technology leaders are uniquely positioned to design the learning spaces of the future and to affect change in all corners of the school.  The ATLIS Leadership Institute is the only program of its kind designed to meet the needs of technology leaders in independent schools as they grow into their positions and expand their influence.

If you have specific questions about the program, please direct them to Susan Davis, [email protected]

This year-long leadership institute is updated each year to address the skills and expertise you need to stay current in your role and to lead your school as schools and learning environments evolve.
