When school is out, it's time for educators to learn together. Each summer, K-12 teachers, leaders, and administrative staff from Hillsdale Member Schools gather on our beautiful Michigan campus for an energizing time of learning with and from each other.

This one-of-a-kind conference focuses on the topics that uniquely fit your role. Whether you are new to teaching at a Hillsdale Member School or an experienced educator, you'll find new ideas, solutions to challenges, and a network of peers you can lean on throughout the school year ahead.

The conference sessions, activities, lodging, and dining are provided at no cost and are exclusive to Hillsdale Member School educators.
