NCAIS: Adding Value for Independent Schools Across North Carolina
The North Carolina Association of Independent Schools (NCAIS) is the recognized and respected membership organization for independent schools across the state. Schools join NCAIS to benefit from the outstanding professional learning opportunities we offer, to access a collaborative network of colleagues, to have a voice in our state legislature, and to utilize a variety of services and resources that enhance learning and save time and money.
Ongoing professional growth is essential to remaining relevant and sustainable in an ever-changing educational landscape. NCAIS professional learning provides a variety of high quality offerings that are affordable and convenient.
NCAIS keeps a watchful eye on activities in the North Carolina legislature that have the potential to impact independent education in our state. We also provide oversight at the federal level in conjunction with Council for the Advancement of Private Education (CAPE) and the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).
NCAIS provides outreach and resources to articulate the value of independent education, in the larger sense, to the communities we serve, and a smaller sense to prospective families.
Sponsors & Exhibitors
Corporate sponsors play a significant role in the life of NCAIS. We offer a variety of opportunities to make connections with school decision makers as well as several options by which sponsors can maintain an ongoing presence on our website. Our sponsors are valuable members of the greater NCAIS community and are recognized throughout the year for their contributions to the Association.Learn More
