It provides a wide variety of services to its members, overseeing and responding to state educational laws and policies, representing the interests of independent schools to the state athletic association, and providing professional development for teachers and administrators. TAIS is the state affiliate of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) and the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS).
