The NASSP National Assistant Principal of the Year program annually recognizes outstanding middle level and high school assistant principals who have succeeded in providing high quality learning opportunities for students. These assistant principals are acknowledged by their peers for the exemplary contributions they have made to the profession.

Each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Department of Defense Education Activity, and the U.S. Department of State Office of Overseas Schools may select one assistant principal to represent their state. The state winner may be either a high school or a middle level assistant principal.

From these state winners, three finalists are named as contenders for the National Assistant Principal of the Year award. The NASSP National Assistant Principal of the Year is selected from among the finalists.

Through the generous support of Jostens, the 2018 NASSP Assistant Principal of the Year will get access to the McKinsey Management Program for School Leaders (MMPSL), a dynamic and highly interactive online leadership training program.  The winner will receive the full MMPSL Executive Leadership Development Program.
