Welcome to the 13th Annual Private and Independent Education Awards!

Return to this link on Thursday, April 29th at 7PM to see our live awards show!

While once again we cannot celebrate in person, we can still celebrate together. This unique event is an opportunity to celebrate, honor and recognize the educators, leaders, staff, programs, and volunteers that exemplify the excellence found across Minnesota’s private and independent school community.

The Minnesota Independent School Forum (MISF) connects and strengthens Minnesota’s independent schools through exceptional training, resources, and advocacy so they can be student-centered and mission-driven.

Since 1976, MISF has been the leading organization connecting, advocating for, and supporting Minnesota’s independent and private schools. The strength of our organization comes from the diversity of our schools – geography, size, pedagogy, student populations and faith affiliations. The need for an all-inclusive and unified voice for private and independent schools has never been more important. Be independent, not alone.

The gala will resume shortly
