NAIS membership is open to independent schools in the U.S. that meet certain requirements, including accreditation by one of our approved organizations. Members receive all benefits, including full access to benchmarking and other statistical data in Data and Analysis for School Leadership (DASL); free job posting and resume browsing in the NAIS Career Center; free access to downloadable NAIS Research reports and legal advisories at; full access to discussions in our NAIS Connect communities; and discounts on products in the NAIS Bookstore as well as on events such as our conferences and institutes.

Subscriptions are for schools that are interested in joining NAIS but don’t meet the membership requirements. We offer two types of subscriptions. Premium Subscriptions allow schools to receive the same benefits as members, but they can’t vote at the NAIS Annual Membership Meeting or use the Proud Member logo. Standard Subscriptions give schools limited benefits. View the differences in benefits, fees, and requirements for our two types of subscriptions.
