We believe investing in the development of high-quality leadership is an integral component to the continued excellence of Catholic Education and the success of our students.
The Catholic Leadership Development Program is a two-part program for ALCDSB staff that supports student achievement and well-being by fostering the growth of passionate and skilled leaders in our Catholic learning communities and across our system.
Part 1 and Part 2 of the Aspiring Catholic Leadership Program consists of six modules each. They are offered in a blended-learning format annually between October and May and designed to support participants in their professional and personal leadership journey.
Part 1 of Aspiring Catholic Leadership Part 1 provides an opportunity for future school and system leaders to grow their leadership capacity through discussion, reflection, and discernment of their own leadership potential. Participants will reflect on vision, values, influence, and motivation within the context of Catholic education and leadership at ALCDSB through an exploration of the Personal Leadership Resources from the Ontario Leadership Framework.
Part 2 of Aspiring Catholic Leadership Part 2 builds on foundational principles of leadership as explored in Part 1. In this session, course participants will focus on the Core Leadership Capacities that empower School Level Leadership practices in the Catholic Leadership Framework: 1. Building Relationships and Developing People 2. Setting Direction 3. Developing the Organization to Support Desired Practices 4. Improving the Instructional Program and 5. Securing Accountability
Sessions will incorporate guiding questions, case studies, reflection, and both large and small group discussion

We accept the call to be imitators of Christ by embracing the Beatitudes through authentic witness at the school, community, and global levels. Rooted in our commitment to transmit our Faith and Catholic tradition, we are inspired to build communities dedicated to the formation of young people who recognize their gifts and responsibilities to contribute to the transformation of the world into a more just and loving society for all.
We believe that each student, made in the image and likeness of God and being hope for the future, can be engaged in their learning and achieve at high levels with appropriate supports. We are committed to ensuring that the potential of each student is realized through the achievement of ambitious outcomes and improving in their learning to the highest possible level.
We embrace our responsibilities for the prudent and judicious use of the resources we have been allocated. In our context, we are committed to the development and growth of all employees, responsible and accountable practices and our call to care for all of God's creation.
