Application & Deadlines

Our aim to create a cadre of professionals who will gain from the program, and from each other as they master the program content, interact with our expert faculty, and share their experiences, ideas, and perspectives. With this in mind, the application process is designed to allow you to examine and share your thinking related to the field, your career objectives, and personal development.


Applications for the 2016-17 year are now being accepted until September 19!


The application consists of four parts: 1) basic information, 2) a personal statement (500 words or less), 3) your resume/curriculum vitae (CV), as well as 4) a letter of recommendation from a professional reference.


For the 2016-17 year, the application deadline has been extended to September 19, 2016 for higher education professionals. For independent school professionals, the cohort has been closed for the 2016-17 year.

Generally, participants will be notified within 3 weeks of the receipt of the application.


Tuition for the program is $10,000 and is payable by the first day of the course, unless otherwise arranged. A three-part payment plan is available upon request.
