Global Christian School Leadership Summit

February 1–3, 2017    

You have a seat at the table! Join together with fellow Christian school leaders (Early Education, Elementary, Secondary, and Higher Education) from around the world to cast a unified vision for the years ahead.

Featured Resources
48.4 Training "Acts 17" Children

False ideas. How in the world could false ideas be on the same level of destruction as drugs or immorality? Maybe this comment by the late philosopher Dr. Richard Rorty of the University of Virginia can provide insight.

48.3 Developing Our Children's Weltanschauung

How do you prepare your children for the challenging race of life—especially in today’s increasingly secular, post-Christian society? I’ve invited Dr. Larry Taylor, head of Prestonwood Christian Academy (Plano, Texas), to expound on that here.

48.2 Christian School Parents, Be Encouraged!

Researchers and God’s Word have long recognized that schools are powerful environments that shape one’s worldview. Deckard and Smithwick’s research (2002) suggests a strong correlation between a biblical Christian worldview and the type of school a student attends.

Extended Planned Absences  
Wondering if any of your schools have policies regarding planned absences of 10 or more days for things like family trips or educational trips abroad. Our challenge is in deciding whether to have a student withdraw or keep them as enrolled, and support them in keeping on track with their work.
Getting Students Ready for the SAT
At Keswick we have both Language Arts for ELLs and English as a Foreign Language that all our ISP kids take, but I'm wondering if anyone could share any extra resources you use to help with SAT prep specifically.
TerraNova3 Time Limits    
This will be our first year using the Terra Nova, so I am carefully reading everything. I see that this is a timed test. Are there options for our slower students (no IEP, just work more slowly) who have been allowed extra time in the past?
