Great Leaders Drive
Great Schools.

BRIGHT is a fresh, bold effort to provide leaders in K-12 education with exceptional training. We believe high-performing, successful schools start with exceptional leaders, who then hire and develop exceptional teachers, who foster learning environments for students to increase positive student access, opportunity, and outcomes. Great leaders drive great schools.


Our leadership development programs are a paradigm shift from traditional training models. We are a unique partnership between the Fisher College of Business and the College of Education and Human Ecology at The Ohio State University. Because of this distinct collaboration, our approach to K-12 leadership training is innovative, diverse, and without equal.
