The Center for Artistry and Scholarship (CAS) supports school leaders and educators to deliver engaging and equitable learning, build relational trust among colleagues, create connections with communities, and thrive in their positions for the long haul. Delivering creative, culturally responsive, and equitable education to all students requires large scale transformation, and we believe that starts by building the knowledge and skills of the leaders and educators in every school.

In particular, CAS provides networking opportunities and customized coaching for school leaders, and designs and facilitates customized professional development programs for schools that support relational trust, racial justice and equity, and culturally competent teaching. Through its close relationship with Conservatory Lab Charter School in Dorchester, MA, CAS can also provide professional development for educators focused on Music Integration.

Each year, CAS also offers the Perrone-Sizer Institute for Creative Leadership (PSi), a yearlong leadership certificate program that immerses participants in school and community-based settings and a design thinking approach to program development. Participation in PSi can lead to graduate credit from the University of Massachusetts Boston.

Our programs and consulting services are offered by innovative school leaders and nationally recognized experts in education, including CAS Executive Director Linda Nathan, PSi Co-Founder Carmen Torres, and CAS Program Director Jill Davidson.
