WELCOME TO NIPSA
There are many associations for educators, but only one for educators who are also entrepreneurs: NIPSA, the National Independent Private Schools Association. Founded in 1983 by a group of California school owners, NIPSA addresses the unique challenges and opportunities inherent in proprietary school operation.
First, let it be said that NIPSA schools share much of the same educational agenda
that might be found in any school, private or public. More importantly, we also share a similar motivation: to provide children with the best education possible.
We are professional educators first and foremost. Many of us are former public school superintendents, principals, and teachers. Others come from university faculties or from families who have been involved in school operation for generations.
