Science Fair: 
ACSI Science Fair exists to encourage Christian young people to apply creativity and critical thought to solving science, engineering, and mathematical problems, while motivating students toward further pursuit of scientific knowledge and understanding of the steps involved in the scientific method. Schools conduct a preliminary science fair and then exhibit their top projects that demonstrate scientific principles or reveal research and supporting data directed toward a science problem. This event is available to grades 1-12 and is not a competition as students are rated against a judging form, not against each other. This event is a full-day event held in late spring. 


Fees:
$60—School Registration Fee
$9—Per Student Participation Fee

Professional Development for Christian School Educators and Leaders

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.
