Leaders in education, shaping the future of a courageous, compassionate world
CAIS Professional Development programs are designed to provide Heads, Chairs and School Leaders with the tools necessary to continually improve educational quality and enhance student outcomes.

CAIS values the constant and deliberate quest for excellence, and we recognize the vital leadership role that governors play, in partnership with Heads, in the success of our schools. We want all of our schools to have strong Heads who focus on supporting the students of the present, but we also want strong Boards that focus on supporting the students of the future.
The Governance Guide includes new learning on a number of areas, including Human Resources, Risk Management, Head Transitions, and Consent Agendas.
CAIS is committed to sharing resources to help our schools continuously improve, meet the National Standards, and ensure educational excellence.
Canada is home to many of the best schools in the world, and our 27 CAIS Boarding Schools represent the best of the best.
