Expand your skillsets at Noble through our leadership programs.


In addition to school-based and network-wide instructional professional development opportunities, Noble’s Talent Pathways are leadership development programs designed for Noble employees who are looking to expand their skill sets. In 2020, more than 100 employees representing all 18 of our campuses participated in Talent Pathways. These programs are Diverse Leaders Fellowship, Management Accelerator, Teacher Leader Program, and Distinguished Teacher.

Designed to invest in emerging leaders of color

Diverse Leaders at Noble have the opportunity to participate in a unique leadership program that combines in-person training with mentorship and access to senior leaders. Fellows prepare for leadership positions in the Network by shadowing senior leaders to better understand Network operations at the highest level. They also take a deep dive into leadership topics and receive 1:1 mentoring from a Noble leader of color.


Designed to expose and develop high-performing individuals with the skills and competencies necessary to run a Noble campus.

The Fellowship is a one-year, cohort-based Principal exposure and development program. Throughout the year, Fellows engage in learning sessions and school visits facilitated by Noble’s senior leaders and external partners
