ACSI - USA Christian Schools Study Tour

April 3–8, 2017 (Monday – Saturday)

Purpose of tour: 

Provide an opportunity to visit like-minded US ACSI Christian Schools and see some sights in Washington D.C.

  1. What does a consistently applied Christian philosophy of education look like in a school environment?
  2. How can the executive leadership of a school present a clear, Christ-centered leadership model?
  3. How is the mission of a Christian school reflected in the student population and in the community that it serves?
  4. Which professional development options can effectively connect the goals of instructional programs to a Christian philosphy of education?
  5. How does the environment of student learning reflect the God-given value of each child and inform quality pedagogy?
  6. How can expected student outcomes include character development, acquisition of Christian values and spiritual formation?

These are the questions that we hope to explore as we introduce you to quality Christian education in the United States during our week-long school tour. Please consider how this tour might inform your vision for Christian education in your setting and begin a dialogue with Christian school leaders from other countries.
