Gatherings – Initial Year Highlights

Back by Popular Demand

In 2017, we offered a “Gatherings” board where attendees could set up informal meetings and networks of their own. You could wait to see who you run into, but why chance it? Explore samples of our 2017 Gatherings below.

The 2018 Gatherings Network–
Online in January!

Sample 2017 Gatherings

High School and College Age Get Together: Hopefully this will be an annual event, with pizza, dessert, and games.

The Challenges of a Small School: This meeting allowed us to identify our most challenging issues and share the best kind of ideas. I came away knowing we are not alone, and together we can solve most of our problems. ‘All things are possible through Christ Jesus.’ This group plans to continue meeting periodically throughout the school year.
Larry Robinson, Headmaster
Haw River Christian Academy, Pittsboro, NC

Merging Classical Christian Education with Farming: The most valuable aspect of our meeting was gaining ideas for how to manifest the ‘lost tools of learning’ via other lost tools–e.g., the crafts and agriculture. I met a teacher who had some neat ideas which I plan to implement.
Hannah Bryan
Conference Attendee

University Scheduled/Hybrid/Collaborative Schools: We appreciated connecting with administrators who share the same challenges. … One of the questions that all of us kept coming back to was, ‘How can we offer our students an excellent, Christ-centered education and keep it affordable for our families?’ I was personally encouraged to hear that same mentality consistently from almost every head of school and board member I spoke with.
Katie Martin, Chairman, Board of Directors
Grace Classical School, Jacksonville, NC

Tea for Wives of Headmasters: Sometimes the better half needs to collaborate, too. Wives of headmasters shared encouragement, experiences, and emails over a hot cup of afternoon tea.
