Why Christian Schooling?
The choice you make for your children's education shapes them academically, spiritually, and in their worldview and skills. At Christian schools, the faculty and staff are equipped to address each of these developing areas of a child's life. These schools take seriously the responsibility to develop children's minds, but they don't distance God from academics. They know that developing skills in young people is essential to helping them reach their God-given potential.
The ACSI Children Education Fund (ACEF) supports educational choice and innovation through school vouchers, scholarship tax credit programs, education savings accounts and other choice programs that provide parents the opportunity to choose a Christ-centered education for their children.
As educators, we’re as unique as the diverse schools we represent. Our professional development should also be unique. Find out what you can expect in our region at this fall’s ACSI Professional Development Forum!

I just had a meeting with two of my very experienced teachers. They are interested in starting a teacher mentoring program with two ideas in mind. One is to mentor teachers who are new to our school and the other is to professionally mentor teachers who are new to our profession. I am seeking assistance from anyone who has an established mentoring program.
I need to create a maternity leave policy for my school. Is anyone willing to share their policy?
I am at a Christian School that is attached to a church. I was looking for ideas to help build the relationship. Sometimes there feels like an us vs. them mentality. I would like to build the fellowship between the church and the school. I have some ideas but I am looking to see if people have tried things that have worked.
