Members & Membership
Perhaps the most important benefit of membership in the Small Boarding School Association is the ability to attend the annual conference, which is limited to 200 attendees. At few other conferences will you have the kind of access to the people you want to see and the opportunity to ask the questions you want to ask that you will at the SBSA conference? It will be one of the most worthwhile and enjoyable conferences you will attend during the year. It will probably be the least expensive too. The fact that the overhead costs of putting on the conference is so low means that we can keep the conference fees low as well.
And who wouldn’t want to become a member of the SBSA when it costs only $300 a year for both membership and conference?
Eligible schools, whether totally boarding or day/boarding, must be designed for students to complete a full academic year at the school and have a boarding program enrollment limited to near or below 200 students. Schools with programs where enrollment is designed for partial, transitional, or temporary instruction are ineligible. The school must be accredited or in process of formal accreditation by a state, regional, or national accrediting agency and must hold not-for-profit status. Educational Consultants who share an interest in the unique issues of small boarding schools are also encouraged to be members. Schools and consultants who meet these criteria and who want to receive the benefits of membership should submit on online membership application.
