An evolving mission

Did you know that AISNE's mission has evolved quite a lot in the last several years? These changes are a clear illustration of the culture shift in New England education. Keep reading to see these changes:


"Believing that schools have the potential to make our world better through their work with children, AISNE provides educational leadership and relevant responsive services to its diverse membership, promotes equity, excellence and collaboration within the NE independent school community, supports schools in their service to a broader public purpose, and advocates for the independence of member schools and the value of independent education." [8]

2017 -

"With an ongoing commitment to equity and inclusion, AISNE shapes the educational landscape for independent schools through leadership, education, service, and strategic advocacy." [9]

Sphere of Influence

Sphere of influence

Becoming accredited allows a school to stay modern and competitive among peers. This "stamp of approval" helps attract prospective families. But did you know that schools also take advantage of resources that accreditation agencies provide? Because of this, the agencies are afforded the power to shape the culture and conversation at member schools, which can influence an entire region.
