Nearly three decades ago, IBSC embarked on a path to support, advance, and celebrate boys’ schools and those who work with boys. Since then, groups of educators, parents, and professionals have gathered in cities and at schools around the globe to share ideas, challenge conventions, and celebrate boyhood. In 2022, that path leads to the city of Dallas and St. Mark’s School of Texas (United States), where, for the first time in nearly three years, we will be together again to continue our journey.
Educators at IBSC member schools worldwide engage in cutting-edge research at their schools to improve best practices.
IBSC connects dedicated educators worldwide to discover the best learning practices for boys.
IBSC partners with One Schoolhouse to deliver online professional development to boys' educators.
Congratulations to Kori Brown of The Haverford School (United States) for winning the 2022 IBSC Action Research Award for completing highly innovative action research projects that make a valuable contribution to the IBSC Action Research community.
After the 2022 IBSC Annual Conference, bring the plenary session speakers back to your school with videos recorded during the live event. If you cannot join us in Dallas, learn from these illuminating speakers on your own device using the Virtual Matchbox platform after the conference. If you do join us in Dallas (we hope so!), you can purchase access to the videos for your entire faculty and staff for one low price.
IBSC brings the exciting world of online learning to members with these professional development opportunities for boys’ educators to explore new teaching paradigms with colleagues from around the globe. The flexible schedule allows you to delve into the innovative coursework on your own time, whenever it's most convenient for you.
As the use of technology in our schools becomes more pervasive, we want to understand how this might shape boys’ learning relationships. The next phase in the research project conducted with the Relationships Foundation seeks to establish baseline data about the use of technology by member schools and create opportunities for more in-depth learning about the impact on relationships
