Flourish Deeper A One-Day Professional Development Opportunity

ACSI's Foundational 3 Pillars:

Advancing

pillar_logoLeading Christ-centered education toward excellence and flourishing

We want all schools to aspire to, achieve, and remain committed to a biblically-based philosophy of education, standards that are measurable, and flourishing-related criteria. ACSI strives to lead, support, and serve Christian schools, and educators, by placing them on a path of growth and flourishing using the research-based Flourishing Schools Initiative. This model should link leadership and faculty professional development accreditation, and every culture-driving component of a school. A common philosophy, and a flourishing-based metric, would unify our efforts of advancing Christian schools and educators.

Access

ACSI is committed to making Kingdom education available to as many children and families as desire it, believing that such an education offers students an opportunity to grow in a loving relationship with their Creator, come to know His saving work through Jesus, and flourish in His Ephesians 2:10 calling for their lives. This commitment requires removing barriers to access for those who traditionally have not benefited from Christian school, as well as seeking out new ways to create access points to Kingdom education and the ability to thrive and be successful in that education—for all those who desire it.


Advocacy

As the largest evangelical Christian school association in the world, ACSI is by default viewed as the spokesperson for Christian schooling in the public square. In order to discharge this responsibility with excellence and seasoned speech (Colossians 4:6), and to equip our member schools to do the same, ACSI must invest in developing public-facing resources and forming strategic relationships with those working in the area of advocacy for Christian Education and for religious liberty.

Restorative Leadership in Times of Crisis

Restorative Leadership in Times of Crisis

DAN STEINFIELD

School administrators across the country are well into planning for the coming fall. Even as we look ahead, many of us, our staff, and our communities are tired. We are facing significant challenges with uncertain futures—whether related to COVID-19, persistent racial injustice and ongoing tension, concerns that are unique to our own localities, and in most cases, a combination of these and more. Many school leaders suddenly find themselves in a role they did not sign up for: the role of restorative leadership.

An Open Letter to Teachers During Ridiculously Difficult Days

School Leadership

PETER GREER

The past few years in education have not been what you thought you were signing up for. There’s been volatility, racial unrest, political turmoil, and growing concerns over students’ mental health. Sprinkle in a pandemic, raging debates over masking, virtual classrooms, and quarantines, and there’s little doubt why teachers are feeling strained, discouraged, and disillusioned.
