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.


FAST NC- Florence Aid to Students and Teachers of North Carolina is an effort led by a bipartisan group of current and former North Carolina education leaders to help the state’s public schools as students and educators struggle to return to normal following Hurricane Florence and its impact. NCPAPA is a partner in this effort and encourages you to learn more about how you can help. Has your school been damaged from Hurricane Florence? Report your school as damaged and can help! If you would like to help schools impacted by Hurricane Florence rebuild their classrooms, you can donate here to this worthwhile recovery effort.
