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.


Testimonial

The PLUS Summer Institute was by far the most important and meaningful five weeks I have ever had as an educator. The sessions, practice, and feedback that I received have set me up with the tools needed to lead.”
