FITZGABRIELS SCHOOLS

INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS ASSOCIATION OF NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND (ISANNE)

When private schools are mentioned, the idea of quaint, historic boarding schools in leafy New England often spring to mind. Considered to be the bastion of a traditional, preppy education, many of these schools have become household names across North America and even further afield. The Independent Schools Association of Northern New England (ISANNE) was the representative body for a selection of such schools. It’s membership was drawn from elite boarding schools, country day schools and specialist schools catering to particular educational needs from across Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont (and even Canada).


ABOUT

ISANNE was founded in the 1970s to advance the interests of and to facilitate networking and sharing of ideas and practices between private schools in the far Northeast. It’s members include a coterie of famous prep schools alongside world-class sports academies, faith schools, special educational needs schools and others, all of which are accredited by the New England Association for Schools and Colleges (NEASC). For many, ISANNE was a byword for schools that offered competitive skiing.

ISANNE merged into the Association of Independent Schools of New England (AISNE) in 2020 with ISANNE schools being moved into the Northern New England chapter. However, many of the schools maintain their close ties and retain their unique northern New England character.
