Mission and Strategic Plan
Believing that schools have the potential to make our world better through their work with children, The Association of Independent Schools in New England (AISNE) provides educational leadership and relevant, responsive services to its diverse membership; promotes equity, excellence and collaboration within the New England 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.
The Transformative Power of Education
We hold that children are inherently good and embody our hope for the future. AISNE schools, and all schools, have the potential to make our world better through their work to inspire, guide, and educate children.
The Community of Independent Schools
AISNE recognizes the autonomy of each independent school and the importance of collaboration among schools.
Consistent, responsive, and relevant service to independent schools is fundamental to AISNE’s purpose.
Equity and Inclusion
AISNE values the diversity of its member schools and is committed to serving them equitably. AISNE has a responsibility to encourage schools, within the context of their missions, to include children and families of many backgrounds in their communities and to create educational environments in which each person is valued and included.
"Accreditation by AISNE is a public affirmation that my school meets the highest standards of educational excellence."
Head, Glen Urquhart School
