Leading With Relationships—The Obligations and Opportunities of Episcopal School Headship

Please join NAES and Episcopal school heads for four 90-minute online sessions throughout the year in October, December, February and April.

Recommended for first and second year heads at Episcopal schools, each session will focus on a specific element of the heads’ circle of relationships. We will discuss each topic as an important connection with Episcopal Identity.
