Conferences & Workshops

Conferences and workshops combine theory with practical applications. They typically address a major topic, such as designing leading edge curriculum or preparing for leadership of a division or department, and often convene leading national experts. Annual offerings include the Annual Conference, Trustee Day (an extension of the Annual Conference), the Heads Conference, the New Teacher Institute, and the Academy for Division Heads. Biennial events include the Diversity Summit. 
Workshops are one-day or two-day seminars for learning new skills and addressing the latest trends. Participants also have the opportunity to interact with educational leaders and network with independent school colleagues. More information on workshop logistics can be found here.
