During a ministry-wide strategic planning process the need to increase our ability to reach our member schools was highlighted. Part of the reimagining of our organizational goals included transitioning from serving Christian schools through an eight-region model to a more streamlined and efficient divisional model that relies on the strategic deployment of field directors and trained volunteers across the country. The Western, Central, and Eastern Divisions will allow us to make staff who belonged to regional teams available to members outside those regions. It will help us address much of the redundancies and duplication of effort that characterized the old regional set-up, which will lead to better stewardship of the resources God has entrusted to us. 

Advancing Kingdom education excellence is what makes ACSI an organization your school community can rely on. With a desire to optimize stewardship of staff, skills and services to ACSI member schools, we have created a divisional model for developing grass-roots engagement.  This will provide strategic deployment of field directors and trained volunteers across the country for better local school support.

ACSI Announces Establishment of New Strategic Incubator

Feb 22, 2021, 08:20 AM by Caitlyn Berman

Colorado Springs, Colo., Feb. 22, 2021– ACSI is pleased to announce the establishment of a new Strategic Incubator designed to better serve 21st century Christian schools.

This enterprise is a research and development unit that will spur on mission-focused business development at the association. The incubator will position the organization to respond nimbly in meeting the needs of Christian schools through creative business strategies.

Through this initiative, ACSI will invest in the production of biblically based and educationally rigorous digital content for Christian schools in both professional development offerings as well as Purposeful Design Publications materials. In addition, the organization will incubate sustainability initiatives and offerings that will enable Christian schools to be missionally nimble, innovative, and collaborative in the current and future market.

 “This is an exciting time at ACSI. The Strategic Incubator will allow us to move forward in developing certain areas that I believe will be crucial to the success of ACSI and our Christian schools well into the future,” said ACSI President, Dr. Larry Taylor.

The first project emerging from this effort is the establishment of a new learning management system offering quality digital content for educators. The guiding distinctives framing content selection include: a foundation of a biblical worldview; contributions from top-level experts and practitioners; personalized learning experiences; and availability to Christian school students around the globe.

Dr. Lynn Swaner, ACSI’s Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer, commented on the importance of this advancement. “This incubator will enable ACSI to take important steps to lead and partner with our 25,000 Christian schools worldwide in meeting their current and future needs in innovative ways,” Swaner said. “There has never been a more opportunity-filled moment for Christian schools, and this new incubator will help schools as they rise to the challenge.”

The incubator—which is aligned with ACSI’s Strategic Plan and has been funded by a generous grant from a private family foundation—will help position ACSI to meet the needs of Christian schools well into the future. Taylor looks forward to seeing the Kingdom return on investment from this grant. 

“We serve a sovereign God who already has the funding plan for what He deems strategic for ACSI,” he said. “We move forward with anticipation as we witness His plan unfold.”
