About AAIE

 

 

The Association for the Advancement of International Education (AAIE) is a not-for-profit association of international schools around the world promoting exemplary school leadership and research-based, effective and innovative educational practices. As an autonomous organization, AAIE was legally incorporated in 1966 with a mandate to further and continuously improve international education and cultural understanding across independent overseas schools. AAIE serves a diverse global community providing leadership development across the ever-changing and expanding spectrum of educational programming initiatives and issues.

Our Mission

A global community that connects diverse people, ideas, and resources,
AAIE helps international educators lead with vision, wisdom, courage, and integrity.

 

The AAIE Mission is our declaration of the unique identity to which we aspire–describing whom we serve, our specific purpose, and what we seek to achieve for our membership.

Our mission describes the extraordinary purpose of AAIE– and it serves as our target toward which we concentrate disciplined action, effort, resources and energy.
AAIE is your place to gather as a world community throughout the year – to belong, to learn together, and to know that to engage in envisioning the future of learning is the underpinning of success for our students. 

The future of our schools depends on vision, wisdom, courage, and integrity. Let’s do the searching, discovery, and collaborative learning together to forge ever improving relationships and school communities.
