At this moment, somewhere around the world, a child is flourishing in a school that is a part of the Association of Christian Schools International. Seeds of everlasting truth are being planted in her heart as the academic knowledge she receives is preparing her for a lifetime of learning, growth and service.
Millions of other children are impacted in similar fashion every single day. Would you like to be an active participant in their transformation? When you become a member of ACSI, you join a global movement through which God speaks life and biblical truth into the hearts of the next generation.
I invite you to team up with ACSI in the work to which God has called us. Become a part of something that has eternal significance as children’s lives are being changed worldwide.

ACSI Hosts 125 Christian School Leaders from 34 Countries for International School Leader Conference in Croatia
Dubrovnik, Croatia– The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) will host its next International School Leader Conference, drawing 125 delegates from 34 countries to Hotel Kompas Dubrovnik from April 23-26, 2023.
Keynote speakers include Dr. Roger Parrott, President of Belhaven University and Senior Leader of the Lausanne Movement, and Dr. Larry Taylor, President & CEO of ACSI.
Tim Shuman, conference host and Senior Director of the ACSI International Division, looks forward to this unique networking time.
“Dr. Parrott has rich experience engaging various cultures around the world,” he shared. “This conference for international school leaders has been a favorite on our calendars for more than 20 years.”
Parrott, recognized as one of the 10 most visionary education leaders of 2021 by “The Education Magazine,” is thrilled to join as keynote speaker.
“I am passionate about helping the people that God has entrusted to me to get the mission accomplished,” he said. “Due to the pandemic, this conference was postponed. I am looking forward to finally being together and will share some ways to hire well, conduct evaluation and maintain accountability.”
Conference sessions will challenge participants in their thinking and allow for open discussion in small group settings.
“We’ve intentionally structured this time to serve as deep professional development for leaders as well as a reprieve away from the busyness of school life,” Shuman said.
Breakout sessions will cover topics including ACSI’s Flourishing research, Trauma Informed Care, Building a Sustainable Financial Framework, and more.
Parrott’s keynote session will focus on leading well and embracing change.
“I’ve always thought I don’t have to motivate an employee if I can just help them find their calling and fulfill that calling,” he shared.
Administrators at this year’s conference will represent 46 schools across Europe, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, Asia and North America.
