Principal Development Institute
Feb. 19–22, 2023 | Franciscan Renewal Center, Scottsdale, Arizona
Available for lead principals with fewer than ten years of experience, PDI is a cohort model event that brings together a network of likeminded school leaders. In addition to training, there are small group discussions and opportunities to share specific challenges you are facing.
Thank you for this incredibly valuable opportunity. I learned a great deal about my profession, not only from the facilitators, who clearly had expertise and wisdom, but I learned the most from passionate colleagues who do this difficult but important work with such faithfulness. I grew Spiritually, professionally and personally through this experience. It was a gift. I went back to my school feeling more prepared for what lies ahead.

"The PDI conference was a time of significant learning and networking for me. In my first year of full-time administration, the opportunity to gain from the advice and wisdom of trusted leaders in the field of education was invaluable. The opportunity to participate in an off-campus setting was also valuable since I could concentrate on learning and assimilating rather than on the daily concerns that are part of administration. I am deeply grateful for your investment in us as Christian school leaders, and ultimately, in the students who will benefit from a God-centered education."
