A Retreat for Reflection, Connections and Conversation

We are so excited to be in person for this year's CAIS Heads Retreat! Facilitated by Martha Perry and Peter Sturrup, this year's Retreat will provide CAIS Heads of School with the opportunity for a time to get away, share thoughts, insights and challenges, gain different perspectives and have conversations with colleagues.

Participants need to be in attendance for and participate in the full Retreat. Please ensure travel plans and logistics allow you to do so. The Retreat will begin with registration at 11:30 AM ET on Monday, July 4 and end at approximately 1:00 PM ET on Thursday, July 7. A detailed agenda will be sent prior to the start of the Retreat.

Participation is limited; last year's Retreat filled up quickly — register today to avoid disappointment.

What Others have Said




I have attended the CAIS Head’s Retreat on a couple of occasions and found it invaluable. Martha and Peter are outstanding leaders and have set an agenda that contributes to a Head of School’s professional well being and growth. The opportunity to get together with colleagues from across the country to share stories and ideas for a few days in early July has definitely benefited our school, our leadership team, and myself. You won’t be disappointed in this investment of time.

Derek Logan, Head of School, Kingsway College School

The Head’s Retreat gave me an opportunity to reflect on the year and to gain perspective. It was such a collaborative and warm atmosphere and I appreciated working with trusted colleagues on tough topics. We engaged in open, honest conversations about challenges and had an opportunity to practice the art of questioning and coaching, which I found invaluable. This is one of the very few times as Heads we get to spend quality time with our peers across the country. I left feeling not only rejuvenated but supported. What a great way to close out the year and transition into the summer!
