Why enroll in PLAA?

Hear from recent graduates about their own PLAA experiences and how it's made an impact on enhancing their leadership ability:

“I've loved so many aspects of this program from being able to collaborate with others, hearing from a variety of leaders on a variety of topics, visiting different campuses, and the A+ visits. It's given me a great overview of school leadership from a variety of perspectives. As someone considering pursuing educational leadership, PLAA played a pivotal role in my decision to embark on the journey to obtain my Masters in Educational Leadership. Furthermore, PLAA provided me valuable insight into many of the critical issues surrounding education and how effective school leaders can approach many of these issues. I highly recommend the program to new or aspiring leaders!”  – 2024 PLAA Graduate

“There are not words to describe how helpful this program was. I believe that every aspiring principal should have to go through this program. I believe that are gaps that exist in education and this program has developed a curriculum is well balanced are addresses many of those gaps that are present, especially in Arizona. The single most useful PD I have ever gone through as a future administrator. This should be a mandatory class for all building administrators.”  – 2024 PLAA Graduate

“Every single part of the academy was beneficial. I have learned so much in many different aspects of being a school leader. There are so many things that I hadn't even thought about that make such a big difference in the climate and culture of a school. I really appreciated the different perspectives and personalities from the different presenters. I appreciate that we are able to reach to these leaders ask questions, ask for guidance, and welcome us to their campus. The AEF Principal Leadership Academy of Arizona provided an incredible and enriching experience that has profoundly impacted my leadership journey.”  – 2024 PLAA Graduate
