What is CEESA?

QSI International School of Yerevan by way of Quality Schools International membership in the CEESA Association participates in a broad number events for students and faculty as well shared commitment to Safeguarding & Child Protection.

CEESA leads educational transformation through collaboration. The Central & Eastern European Schools Association (CEESA) was founded as a result of the growth of American and International Schools in Central and Eastern Europe. In many cases, the schools were geographically isolated from each other and from the main stream of American and International Education.

CEESA was formed to broaden the horizons of schools and to promote professional growth. CEESA is your KEY to unlock professional development in the region. In addition to the CEESA Annual Conference in March, CEESA sponsors regional workshops, institutes and meetings to foster professionalism, scholarship, and a deeper understanding of improvements for leading, teaching and learning.

A unique offering of our association is that CEESA sponsors student activities, focusing on a variety of academic and non-academic areas, and a full schedule of sports events. See the calendar for a list of these events.
