About the 2017 NAIS Annual Conference
Make Your Mission Matter: From Vision to Values
As independent learning communities, our schools are called upon to establish both our everyday practices and our larger educational philosophies in our schools’ missions.
School leaders are compelled to look beyond fluctuating trends and use mission and vision as guiding principles to explore what matters most.
Join the NAIS to discover how we can honor our values, be attentive to the complexities of the present, and look forward to a courageous and inspiring vision for the future of our schools and our students.
The NAIS Annual Conference is the premier professional development and networking event for administrators, trustees, and teachers at independent schools.
