Preview morning Feb. 22 at Salisbury Academy

Salisbury Academy faculty and staff invite families to visit the school Feb. 22 for a preview morning event.
The event begins at 8:30 a.m. and will include information about Salisbury Academy, time to interact with current families and a discussion on the seven key principles of an effective school choice decision. Families are also invited to tour the campus and spend time in the classrooms to get a first-hand look at the school’s challenging and enriching curriculum that provides skills needed for 21st learners.
“Effective school choice begins with an understanding of a school’s mission, faculty, curriculum, learning environment and co-curricular activities,” said Academic Administrator and Admissions Director Beverly Fowler. “We welcome all families to come learn about key areas to consider when making the decision about the right school choice for their child.”
For more information contact Fowler at bfowler@salisburyacademy.org or 704-636-3002, extension 103.
Salisbury Academy Head of School Diane Fisher and a member of the Board of Trustees recently attended the North Carolina Association of Independent Schools (NCAIS) conference for independent school leaders.
“This was a great opportunity to network with leading educators from independent schools about similar interests and concerns,” said Fisher. “We work hard to stay abreast of trends in education, but there is no substitute for talking with other professionals about their experience.”
Fisher and Board of Trustees Vice Chair Melody Lee attended roundtable discussions and seminars on understanding trends impacting independent schools, financial roles and strategies, and other areas of best practice for independent schools.
“This was a great opportunity to gain knowledge of what other schools are doing,” said Lee. “It was affirming to realize Salisbury Academy is ahead of other independent schools in many areas.”
NCAIS is an association that governs more than 80 schools, with more than 3,500 teachers serving approximately 35,000 students. The association encourages communication among member schools, fosters the traditional freedom of the independent school to practice its philosophy of education, and serves as a liaison with regional and national accrediting agencies, and the National Association of Independent Schools. The organization offers professional development opportunities each year.
