Since 1984, when what is now THE PAIDEIA CONFERENCE began meeting, we have convened in USA cities coastto-coast, most often in Philadelphia or, more recently, Chicago. Only once before have we journeyed beyond the borders: In 2013, when THE PAIDEIA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE met at Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, where we drew more than a dozen different national school systems.

As the PAIDEIA, Inc. Global Division has expanded under the leadership of Vice President and Executive Consultant David A. Wells, we sense an increasing need to choose sites convenient for our overseas clientele and other interested parties. So now PAIDEIA, Inc. is planning the next of several international events, to be held in Panama City, Panama, on Friday and Saturday, September 23-24, 2016. The Hotel InterContinental Miramar is the venue for THE PAIDEIA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE: PANAMA 2016.

Our keynote speaker is Steve Robinson, former President of SAIS, now Canon for Education, Episcopal Diocese of Honduras. Other presenters are David Wells, D. Bruce Lockerbie, and Toby Travis, PAIDEIA, Inc; Donald Lockerbie, CEO, OLYMPVS Int’l; and Estuardo Salazar, ACSI Latin America.


Intended for owners of proprietary schools, board members of all schools, heads/directors, and other administrators, the theme of PAIDEIA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE: PANAMA 2016 is “Building Schools That Last.”
