NELA Principal Residency

The purpose of the NCSU MSA Principal Residency is to provide a realistic, action-oriented learning experience for each MSA Principal Resident with expert Principal Mentors.

The Principal Residency prepares the NCSU MSA Principal Residents to develop strong interpersonal relationships, discern student learning and effective teaching, model reflective practice, and master leadership skills and dispositions that support school improvement efforts. The Principal Residency is purposefully designed to immerse the Principal Residents in learning opportunities and activities to help them gain proficiency in the North Carolina Standards for School Educators.
