In 2017, we offered a “Gatherings” board where attendees could set up informal meetings and networks of their own. Explore samples of our 2017 Gatherings below.

Sample 2017 Gatherings

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

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

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.
