The mission of GISA is to advance excellence and collaboration among Georgia’s independent schools by serving the professional growth, advocacy and interscholastic needs of member schools. Each member school is unique, while sharing a unified commitment to overall excellence as well as to the nurture and care of the physical, intellectual, social and moral development of all students.
AISAP serves as a primary resource and leading advocate for the community of independent school admission and enrollment management professionals. We seek to establish best practices for the enrollment profession and provide core competencies for enrollment professionals.
