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.
