Biennial Conference, held in the fall of even number calendar years, is the premier gathering of Episcopal school leaders from around the Episcopal Church U.S.A., as well as a small but growing number of leaders from other parts of the Anglican Communion. The Conference's professional development opportunities are designed to support and strengthen the leadership and governance of our schools and the articulation of their Episcopal identity. All of this is for the ultimate benefit of the students they educate.
