Independent schools pioneer new approaches to teaching and learning, delivering engaging educational experiences to their students and serving as laboratories of innovation for all schools.

Inspiration Lab is a place where we share stories about these exceptional and innovative programs.

Independent schools are private, nonprofit K – 12 schools. They include day and boarding schools, single-gender and coeducational schools, religious and non-religious schools. Each independent school is guided by a unique mission, yet together the independent school community contributes to the progress of education in the United States and all over the world.

Inspiration Lab was created by The National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). NAIS is a membership organization for independent schools.
