About the Festival

The Festival of Education, a renowned event created by Wellington College in the UK, is set to take place for the first time in the USA. Aimed at educators, this Festival provides an unparalleled platform for teachers to learn, grow and connect with other like-minded individuals in the field of education.

With its tagline, “Where those who inspire find their own inspiration,” the Festival promises to be a space where educators can share their innovative ideas, participate in insightful discussions, and engage in activities designed to foster creativity and collaboration. As a Festival that has gained widespread recognition in the UK, the Festival of Education is sure to be a valuable experience for teachers in the US looking to enhance their knowledge and skills in the field of education.

At the heart of the Festival is an understanding that learning should be inspiring, engaging and fun. The Festival is no ordinary education conference. From challenging debates to expert orators, and from renowned headliners to unexpected new connections, the Festival of Education is an event where those who inspire find their own inspiration.

The Festival of Education is a collaboration between St. Andrewโ€™s Episcopal School and its internationally recognized  Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning and the curators behind the UK Festival, Wellington College and Lsect. The Festival of Education was created by Wellington College, a leading school in the UK. It has grown to become one of the most significant education events in the UK with over 5,000 educators accessing over 300 speakers across two days. Coachella, but for teachers. 

The Washington, DC area has been selected as the location for the inaugural USA Festival of Education due to its concentration of various education stakeholders, including public, private, charter, and home schools and districts, as well as undergraduate and graduate schools, educational technology innovators, national and state policy makers, and foundations and philanthropic organizations. This region is united in its goal of improving teaching and learning both regionally and nationally.
