MISF connects and strengthens Minnesota’s independent schools
through exceptional training, resources, and advocacy
so they can be student-centered and mission-driven
We believe that when every independent school is connected and strong, Minnesota’s families will be able to select the school that best fits their children, and Minnesota’s students will excel.
We connect school leaders to each other and build their capacity through access to critical resources so that they are able to lead schools that thrive and meet the needs of their students, families and staff.
We create meaningful professional development opportunities for staff & teachers to learn from each other and develop new skills so that they are equipped to build exceptional schools and deliver high quality education for all students.
We advocate with a focused and united voice so that local and state policy makers will understand and support policies and practices that strengthen Minnesota’s independent schools.
