"When public and private schools partner, we all benefit. Collaboration generates innovative ideas, improves teaching, and can benefit the larger community in many ways. NAIS is committed to supporting these types of endeavors."
Patrick F. Bassett, President, National Association of Independent Schools

Independent schools have significantly increased their public purpose commitments over the past decade. Their initiatives carry them beyond community service to broader engagement with their communities.

Why? The reasons vary, but include a moral commitment to serve the community, a desire to teach students how to live and work in a multicultural world, and an acknowledgment that continuing as we are is unsustainable for society.
