We believe that the heart of Christian education is the Christian teacher and that these teachers may achieve their full potential when they are able to integrate Christian character* with Christ-centered educational practices. This integration of faith and practice requires committed training.

Conferences for school leaders highlight themes such as “Implementing a Christian Philosophy of Education”, “Leading from the Heart”, and “Developing Professional Learning Communities”. Teacher conference themes and workshop topics may include “Strategies for Biblical Integration”, “Teaching to Heart and Mind”, “21st Century Skills in the Christian School” and many more.

A Student Leadership Conference is also available for all member schools and the International ACSI schools and addresses concepts of Christian leadership for nearly 300 high school students each year.

 


* Christian character might be defined as the deep connection between correct beliefs about God and the disposition and attitudes that flow from our lives in every situation and relationship.

Christ-centered educational practice reflects the value of the student as well as the value of the curriculum with a clear perspective that "all truth is God's truth". Every aspect of school life and learning should point the student toward God's love and truth and inspire a calling to His service. These things happen usually because of the relationships that develop between the students and the teacher.
