Our Mission

The Elementary School Admission Directors (ESAD) and the Consortium of Secondary School Admission Directors (CSSAD) consist of over 60 Los Angeles area independent schools that share a common mission: assisting families in their exploration of independent school education. We do so by following the best practices of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS); by establishing and adhering to ethical, consistent policies and procedures, most notably, our common decision notification and response dates. We are also committed to sharing resources and expertise in a collegial manner to support the recruitment and enrollment of students.

It is our hope, that through this website and through our school fairs, we increase awareness of and access to independent school options in the Los Angeles area.
