Mission Statement

“The mission of the Association of Independent Schools of Florida is to maintain the highest educational, ethical and professional standards among member schools for the benefit of the children of Florida. The Association recognizes the importance of a variety of philosophical approaches to education in order to meet the distinctive needs of children and their parents.

We affirm that our goal is educational excellence. To this end, we accredit member schools according to strict standards and provide organizational and pedagogical services to schools and teachers − including workshops, training and participation on school evaluation teams, and an annual teaching & school leadership conference, as well as informational publications.

We foster the objective that the best educational experiences should be available to all students and require that our member schools practice non-discrimination in all of their programs and activities on the basis of race, color, national origin, ethnic origin, and disability (if not exempt from Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act), including their educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.”
