IBSC and the Centre for Innovation, Research, Creativity, and Leadership in Education (CIRCLE) present a conference designed to equip school leaders with the knowledge and competencies to build robust 21st century schools for boys—schools of character.
Join us to explore the singular culture of a boys' school. Discover how a school's history, values, mission, students, and faculty contribute to creating a culture that helps boys develop an intellectual and emotional core.
Engage in collaborative breakout sessions with facilitated discussions to examine what features of a boys' school contribute to the soul of a boy, how to build and maintain a culture of healthy masculinity, and how schools might take advantage of boys' desire to do good and appeal to their higher longings.
Join New York State Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS) and IBSC members to explore, connect, and learn best practices for teaching boys. Educators working with boys at all educational levels will benefit from this collaborative conference.
Take a look at our upcoming online classes.

Recent publicized events globally have raised questions about the effectiveness of boys' schools teaching moral conduct, especially respect for women. All members of the International Boys' Schools Coalition (IBSC) have no tolerance in any schools for disrespect, unkindness, or violence. We believe a good school succeeds primarily because of its school culture, regardless of whether it is single sex or coeducational, but we reaffirm our belief that boys' schools succeed for many boys. That success stems from many reasons, but foremost from teaching young men moral values and principles that strengthen our society and model kindness, tolerance, empathy, and especially respect for women.
