Mission and Strategic Plan
Mission Statement (approved May, 2014)
With an ongoing commitment to equity and inclusion, the Association of Independent Schools in New England (AISNE) shapes the educational landscape for independent schools through leadership, education, service, and strategic advocacy.
Core Values (approved January, 2015)
AISNE envisions a stronger, more inclusive, and more collaborative community of independent schools that - with the help of AISNE and each other - has the information, resources, and strategies it needs to
thrive in a continuously changing educational landscape. AISNE uses the following core values as the guiding principles and beliefs that guide our work with member schools:
Equity and Inclusion:
AISNE values the diversity of its member schools and is committed to serving them equitably.
Schools have the potential to make our world better through their work to inspire, guide, and educate children.
Collaboration and Community:
AISNE recognizes the autonomy of each independent school and believes that the community of independent schools is enriched and strengthened when schools collaborate and work with one another.
AISNE schools are committed to being mission driven and student focused. By engaging in regular reflection and evaluation, they remain relevant to the students and families they serve.
Service and Public Action:
AISNE believes that independent schools have a public purpose and responsibility to improve the common good.
"Accreditation by AISNE is a public affirmation that my school meets the highest standards of educational excellence."
