High School Instrumental Festival:
ACSI High School Festivals exist to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ through musical talent, encourage one another to share in the ministry of music, and provide an opportunity to benefit from the evaluation of a qualified adjudicator. Students from each category are chosen by adjudicators to be spotlighted in the command performance. The command performance combines the students from all schools to perform as one choir or one band directed by the Guest Director. This is a two-day event held in spring.

Professional development (PD) opportunities are nearly universal in the experiences of U.S. educators, both in public school settings and in Christian schools. The question of which PD strategies are most effective has become more critical in recent years, as schools face increasing internal and external pressures to improve student outcomes and optimize instructional expenditures. As a result, many school leaders are seeking to identify PD opportunities with high return on investment (ROI) in terms of student learning and achievement.
In an effort to address this issue systematically, a comprehensive literature synthesis was commissioned by ACSI (Swaner 2016). The synthesis, which surveyed over 500 scholarly articles and resources over the past 20 years, asked the question, “What are best practices in PD for Christian school teachers and leaders?” While little research was found specific to Christian education, what was available corroborated much of the broader literature on PD in K–12 schools. A set of characteristics of effective PD were identified in the literature, as well as a range of practices for which there exists research on their effectiveness. The synthesis also reviewed the evidence for the importance of cultures of continuous improvement to the effectiveness of any PD efforts.
