Sponsorship and Advertising

Independent schools are facing a new normal as they navigate this uncertain time. With each new challenge comes new opportunities, and schools often look to experts like you to guide them through these situations. NAIS is excited to offer you new ways to gain targeted visibility in the independent school community.


Aligning your company with an NAIS podcast through a brief sponsor spotlight and website visibility puts your brand in front of the many listeners and shows your commitment to the independent school community.

Member Voices

The NAIS Member Voices podcast features stories from the thoughtful, hardworking individuals who make up the independent school community. This podcast features stories from faculty and staff at NAIS member schools about their roles, challenges, successes, inspiration sources, and more. Each episode centers on school stories that focus on a timely topic.

The 2024-2025 season will feature four themed series, and each series will include episodes spread throughout the year. Series can be sponsored in their entirety, or individual episodes can be sponsored.
