The Executive Leadership Institute is a not-for-profit organization designed to deliver practical, relevant and essential professional development for today's school leaders. The intent of the various programs is to provide standards-based, results-driven leadership training to help school leaders successfully fulfill their responsibilities as instructional leaders.

Behind our mission is this premise: Each NYC school has a unique culture, a synthesis wrought from the different communities of people who work in and attend the school. A school leader integrates these constituencies into a harmonious, effective school with engaged, achieving students. Our programs give school leaders the tools they need to create true learning communities.

Since 2002, we have trained hundreds of school leaders to better manage the day-to-day activities at schools as well as in the overarching theories and practices that govern education. Our topics range from data management for improved student achievement to hands-on computer workshops covering Galaxy and Excel software. We provide one-on-one mentoring, small workshops, large seminars and daylong programs. Scores of our participants have ascended the leadership ladder and hundreds more are well on their way.

Programs that take place in our five Educational Leadership Centers include:

ELI also offers a large selection of single topic workshops throughout the school year and summer. Scheduling of all workshops is carefully planned around the school calendar to maximize a supervisor's ability to attend.

Great schools begin with great leaders. It is our mission to equip them with the tools they need to succeed. Please read through this entire section for further details about ELI's programming, or call (212) 823-2020 to speak to a staff member.
