This cohort is an opportunity for you to find camaraderie and connection in a safe environment as you navigate the challenges of leading a school.
Here is what a few of our former cohort members had to say about their experience:   
"Incredibly thankful and blessed by the knowledge, relationships, and friendships that NHU provided me.  I would not have made it through my first year without it!"   
Natasha McGee, Head of School, St. Mary’s Episcopal Day School, Bellville

The opportunity to be part of a group of all-new Episcopal Heads of School has proven to be such a blessing. I was offered so much support, knowledge, and a safe space to ask questions of my peers as well as our facilitators. My cohort and I are all so grateful for the network we now have and will continue to stay connected moving forward.   
Anne Ivy, Head of School, St. David’s Episcopal School, San Antonio
