Conferences & Workshops

Conferences and workshops combine theory with practical applications to support exceptional teaching, learning and leadership. Events address major topics, such as addressing current challenges and opportunities in all aspects of teaching and learning, designing leading-edge curriculum, exploring best practices for those serving in any role, or developing current and aspiring leaders, often led by leading national or international experts.

Hallmark conference experiences include the Annual Conference, the Heads Conference, the New Teacher Institute, the Academy for Division Heads, the New Leaders Academy, the ISACS Diversity Summit, and the Leadership Academy. These reoccurring events are complemented by new offerings designed to address the changing needs in our schools.

Workshops are generally one-day or two-day experiences offered to develop new skills, hear new research and consider the most current trends in education. Workshop participants also have the opportunity to interact with educational leaders and network with independent school colleagues. For 2023-24, ISACS will offer workshops in downtown Chicago in the enhanced ISACS Classroom or at local hotel/conference locations. Check the ISACS website for updates on workshop and conference locations.
