The Alabama Independent School Association’s mission is to serve independent schools in the state of Alabama by providing its member schools with educational and corporate services and programs focusing on excellence in academics, accreditation, and athletics. This includes strengthening and supporting member schools by offering professional development to school administrators and faculty.
Each year, workshops and programs in a variety of topics are offered as learning opportunities for educators. Not only does the educator benefit from professional development, but ultimately the students.
Professional Development is an ongoing process made available to all AISA educators.
