NCAIS is thrilled to announce that we are 2021 recipients of an EE Ford grant to develop an asynchronous, online course on Race and Equity. Entitled Building Understanding and Action Around Race and Equity in Independent Schools, this course will include content from a broad cross-section of DEI educators, practitioners, consultants, and student activists. With the help of our course architect, Keith Henderlie, we will create a tapestry of voices and expertise to inform, engage, and transform understanding, conversations, and action in our schools. Watch your inbox for additional details soon!  Launch Date: June 2020!

Planning for the 2021-2022 school year is well underway!  We are looking forward to offering a blended professional development calendar with virtual events, in-person events, and asynchronous/recorded opportunities. 

NCAIS promotes educational excellence and empowers member schools to thrive in pursuit of their missions.
