Event description

Description

We're back with great independent schools and advice on how to apply and enroll with your children of color. Is it the right school choice for your family? How do parents partner for success while inside independent schools?

Our RIISE network is ready to help prepare you to identify the right school fit. Through the lens of equity and inclusion, RIISE continues to create meaningful and intentional spaces for parents and schools to inspire, develop, and clarify recruitment & enrollment. The RIISE Parent Power Conference will do this again on Saturday, April 29.

This year's keynote speaker is Clinical Psychologist and Course Director of Behavioral Medicine at Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine, Dr. Jeffrey Gardere. Also known as "America's Psychologist", Dr. Jeff will help our families clarify the benefits and illuminate the challenges of an independent school education.

Register today to engage with great admission directors, educational thought leaders, parents, and workshops. Sponsors: Riverdale Country School, Birch Wathen Lenox School, Greenwich Academy, Town School & Vibrant Health
