The mission of PAIS includes supporting and strengthening member schools by developing and offering professional development services for member school personnel.
PAIS advocates to the broader educational community in a general way about the benefits of an independent school education, but PAIS also advocates in a very specific sense for the professional development of the teachers and administrators who work in those schools. Each year programs, workshops and roundtables are offered in a wide variety of topics, all intended to help educators get better at what they do. By PAIS emphasizing the need of all members of an educational community to get better at what they do, students are the ultimate beneficiaries. That’s why one cornerstone of the PAIS Mission is professional development.
