Ad Astra Summit 
on Education

No Room For Failure: National and International Perspectives on Promoting Student Success

SEPTEMBER 13, 2024





The 4th Ad Astra Summit on Education, formerly known as World Future Forum, provides a platform for the presentation of new advances and research results in education theory and practice.

The Summit brings together academics, researchers, school leaders, and graduate students to share their research findings and best practices. The Summit includes presentations on innovative and emerging trends in educational practices to promote the successful transition of students beyond high school. All submissions are peer-reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical and/or research depth, accuracy, and relevance to the conference’s themes and topics.

The Summit is organized by Ad Astra Research Institute, a not-for-profit educational organization, focused on maximizing college and career success by investigating the process of transition and translating findings into programs that equip PreK-12th grade students for academic and occupational success beyond high school.

The Summit is a unique platform for international and national perspectives on education, aimed at creating solutions to K-16 educational issues and building a strong network of global educational leaders. The vibrant and historic city of Chicago always provides a fitting backdrop to this globally minded conference.
