Klingenstein Center Awards Fellowship to James Tracy

Headmaster James Tracy has been awarded a prestigious fellowship from the Klingenstein Center at Teachers College, Columbia University to participate in an international program of professional development for heads of schools. This distinguished award is granted to twenty heads of school annually from the United States and abroad who demonstrate outstanding accomplishments and potential for excellence.

The mission of the Klingenstein Center is to improve the quality of independent school education by developing and strengthening leadership among teachers and administrators in independent schools. Carefully crafted programs, drawing on the academic resources of Teachers College and the other graduate schools of Columbia University, are designed to provide the knowledge, skill, and understanding necessary for informed and effective practice. In an age in which independent school educators are called upon to understand both the business of management and the moral purpose of educating youth, the Klingenstein Center stands alone in its capacity to develop leaders.
