We’re training a team of dynamic principals to lead the schools that Camden students deserve.

Camden Pathway to Leadership in Urban Schools (CamdenPLUS) is a local two-year principal certification program that prepares accomplished educators to transform the community by strengthening our schools—and raising achievement for our students.

About the Program
The CamdenPLUS Residency blends intensive summer trainings and a year of hands-on practice in a local school, with support from a mentor principal and leadership coach. Residents manage a team of teachers and students, and those who demonstrate success go on to lead their own school during their second year.

Meet a Resident
Our Residents are experienced educators with a strong track record in the classroom and a deep commitment to Camden’s students. Residents have prior experience leading adults—as lead teachers, coaches, and department chairs—and are passionate about helping teachers do their best work.

How to Apply
Applications for the 2017-18 school year are now closed. Applications will reopen in fall 2017 for the next cycle. In the meantime, sign up for our mailing list to stay in touch.


Testimonial

“The PLUS program is different from traditional leadership programs because not only do they offer strategies and techniques that are proven to work, but you actually practice, role-play, and receive meaningful feedback on how to improve. Then you do it all over again!”
