School Culture

Your School Can Flourish
A flourishing Christian school is a community of students, educators, and families that glorifies Christ and excels in knowing Him and making Him known. Though such a community happens entirely by His grace, it does not happen at all by accident.

A Valid Model

Our concept of “flourishing” is tailored to Christian schools, whose holistic expected student outcomes encompass learning and growth in the areas of spirituality, academics, community-mindedness, excellence, impact, and servanthood.

The Flourishing School Culture Model and Instrument were developed as exploratory tools to identify and validate a roadmap to flourishing for Christian schools.
