The Summer Institute, a three-day conference for secondary school administrators, offers an unparalleled gathering and learning opportunity each Summer on Cape Cod.

The days are filled with content-rich workshop sessions that are relevant, meaningful and important to every school administrator. Numerous workshop sessions will encourage attendees to share and learn best practices over areas of interest pertinent to the challenges of urban, suburban, vocational, middle school, or high school administrators.

In addition to these highly valued sessions, attendees have opportunities to hear timely speakers, interact with MSSAA Corporate Partners and enjoy social time with other administrators and the amenities of the hotel venue.

New and aspiring administrators are encouraged to attend!
