To ensure a strong continuum of school leaders, The Leadership for Educational Achievement Foundation, Inc. (LEAF), NYSIR and Capital Region BOCES offer the Future Superintendents Academy, a comprehensive program to prepare high level administrators aspiring to become superintendents in the next few years.

The Future Superintendents Academy requires a year-long commitment. Participants are required to attend a summer institute and eight weekend sessions throughout the year. The program includes critical topics relevant to the superintendency such as communications; change, systems and planning; governance; financial leadership; human resources; instructional leadership; and the search and interview process.
