Authentic Connections / NAIS Pilot

Authentic Connections is very excited to announce a new pilot with the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) to bring the High Achieving Schools Survey to eight NAIS member schools.
NAIS is a nonprofit membership association that provides services to more than 1,800 schools and associations of schools in the United States and abroad. Through this new pilot project, eight member schools will receive partial funding from NAIS to participate in the High Achieving Schools Survey.
NAIS will contribute half of the standard fees associated with the study for eight of its member schools. For schools that would like one in-person results presentation from Dr. Luthar, the school will contribute $3,500 and NAIS will contribute $3,500. An enhanced package is also available that includes a series of three talks to faculty, the community, and students. For the enhanced package, schools will contribute $6,000 and NAIS will contribute $6,000. Schools will also cover travel and lodging costs associated with Dr. Luthar’s visit to the school.
If you are interested in participating in this survey or have any additional questions please contact Nina Kumar, VP of Operations at Authentic Connections, or Carol Bernate, Research Assistant at NAIS.
