The Principal-in-Residence (PIR) program offers NHA school leaders the opportunity to perfect their abilities as leaders of school culture, drivers of academic success and managers of staff. This program is designed to provide an effective transition for school leaders; allowing them to learn NHA's core processes, operational model and culture. The aim of the program is to transition the PIR to a principal position, responsible for an NHA school, at the completion of this developmental role.

Participants receive a competitive salary and benefits, as well as the opportunity to work under an NHA principal recognized for achieving strong academic results and for building a school culture committed to excellence. The duration of the residency is intended to last between 6 – 24 months but can vary depending on the needs of the individual as well as the availability of a principal role.
