  • ACSI’s Flourishing Schools Research in 2018 was groundbreaking and yielded the first ever measure and model of Christian school flourishing. A new report, Leadership for Flourishing Schools: From Research to Practiceanswers the question of how these findings can be utilized by school leaders—including heads of school, administrators, and school boards—to develop their own practices that lead to flourishing-related outcomes for their schools. The report also provides two sets of self-reflection guides—one for school leaders and one for school boards—with questions that can be used individually and collaboratively to strengthen leaders’ foundational, relational, and strategic practices for flourishing. After a COVID related cancellation and postponement, we are excited to launch the next steps – The Flourishing Schools Institute (FSi).
  • ACSI Annual Leadership Network Meetings (formerly District Meetings) are scheduled; some will be Live, and some are going Virtual for 2021! This year's content will be based on your feedback from an earlier survey. Open here to preview dates for a meeting in your area. Watch for more information coming soon!
