Exeter for Educators


Teachers trained yearly in intensive on-campus workshops

See you in June!

Thank you for your interest in our Exeter for Educators Conferences. We look forward to seeing you on campus during the week of June 19, 2022. Rolling registration will begin in February.

We host professional development institutes at Exeter each summer, at the end of June. These intensive six-day workshops attract more than 400 teachers from a broad spectrum of schools, including private, parochial and public schools in the U.S. and abroad. All based on Harkness learning concepts, the conferences focus on specific subjects, including math, science, technology, Shakespeare, writing, environmental literature and diversity.

We continue to develop new conferences to meet demand, most recently launching the Exeter Diversity Institute and the Environmental Literature Institute at Exeter.

Exeter Mathematics Institute takes Harkness teaching and our custom-developed math materials to schools around the U.S. and Europe for workshops taught by PEA math instructors.

Exeter Mathematics Institute will hold off-campus summer workshops at various sites across the country. Visit our EMI page to see our  list of previous EMI locations and to register beginning in early 2022.

We continuously develop our teaching methods to ensure their effectiveness in a changing world, and share techniques with teachers around the globe.
