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.
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!
Giving Day, a member benefit started last year, enables schools to join with ACSI and other member schools in a national, 24-hour crowdfunding campaign.

Many would agree that our culture has changed a lot in the last several decades. Unfortunately, not all of the changes have been good as our culture has increasingly departed from its Judeo-Christian heritage. One of the most significant changes is evident in the consideration of what is acceptable in the realm of human sexuality. People now seem much more tolerant of aberrant sexual behavior, whether it is premarital sex, cohabitation, marital infidelity, or homosexual behavior. The current culture eschews the biblical understanding of what is acceptable to God.

Over the past five years, we've given you the opportunity to talk back to us about your needs. Just as effective teachers assess and respond to the needs of their students, ACSI is modifying how we deliver professional development in response to you. As a result of your feedback, in the fall of 2016 you'll experience a new professional development opportunity through the 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.
Does anyone know if the changes to Reach standards applies to AdvancED also?
