Thrive as an Adaptive Leader

Reflect and renew on Cape Cod with peer heads of school from across New England. Immerse yourself in deep thinking about the opportunities front and center for you as a leader, as well as for your school, during these times of disruption and evolution.

Enjoy moments of mindfulness, relaxation and fellowship, integrated across this multi-day experience. Invest in yourself, your school and the AISNE community, through your participation in this meaningful program.
