In existence since 1976, the North Carolina Principals and Assistant Principals’ Association is the preeminent organization and state voice for principals, assistant principals and aspiring school leaders.
NCPAPA was established with the firm belief that strong positive administrative leadership is the determining factor in the quality of a child’s public education in North Carolina. Today, NCPAPA represents 5,000 members from across the state and is the state's primary contractor for leadership development.
As one voice, we aim to promote excellence in educational leadership for the State of North Carolina.
Twenty-five school leaders, from across the state, have been selected to participate in the inaugural cohort of the Assistant Principal Accelerator, a leadership development program for Assistant Principals with a high potential for being fast-tracked into the principalship.
The North Carolina Principals and Assistant Principals’ Association (NCPAPA) has selected Morehead City Middle School Assistant Principal Mrs. Allison Graham as the 2022 North Carolina Secondary Assistant Principal of the Year.
