Strengthen Your School Leadership

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 include new learning on a number of areas, including Human Resources, Risk Management, Head Transitions, and Consent Agendas.

2018 CAIS Middle School Leadership Camp

At CAIS, we are dedicated to fostering student leadership at all levels. We recognize that one of the key factors to having strong, capable, confident leaders in our senior schools is helping students gain some experience and practice being leaders at a younger age. The CAIS Middle School Leadership Camp is committed to harnessing our student’s budding leadership potential and working with this age groups fearlessness and energy to design a weekend that cannot be parallelled or forgotten.

The program is designed and led by educators who have dedicated their careers to character and leadership development both within their own schools and the wider community. Students are given the opportunity to support and challenge each other as leaders so they can make their own unique mark on their schools and on society. The experience provides them with the tools, experiences, and connections to help them think about the type of leader they aspire to be and how they can begin to put that into action at their own school.

Last year, over 140 students representing more than 20 CAIS schools from across Canada attended and went through our specifically designed program. New experiences, new perspectives, new challenges, new friends, and a stronger sense of self are all things the participants take home with them.

Don’t wait to register your school! Last year, we ran out of spots and had to start a waiting list. You do not want to miss out on this opportunity!
