2017 Leaders Conference

The Leaders Conference Theme is Positive Change and focusses on ABSA's catch phrase of 'Creating the Future for Boarding Schools'.

We are excited to share a unique deep learning opportunity with a conference featuring Dr. Christopher Thurber, a psychologist, author, and father who works extensively with boarding schools around the world. For nearly 20 years, he has served on the faculty of Phillips Exeter Academy, a coeducational boarding and day school in New Hampshire, on the east coast of the United States.
