The Lion

Christian Education News

We provide real-time news on what is happening within the world of Christian education. Stay up to date about trends of innovation within institutions of Christian education from schools to homeschools to churches. Christian education is a movement of local parents, churches, and schools to reclaim our children’s education for Christ. Our publication, The Lion provides perspectives and insights into a wide array of cultural topics.


Emerging Christian School Development

We created educational resources to aid new and emerging Christian schools across the country. These resources will catalyze the creation of new schools and help parents and administrators navigate the start-up process. Resources can be used by entrepreneurs in schools and at home to make Christian education relevant for today’s students.

Training & Conferences

We provide training, events, and conferences to address relevant topics within the Christian education sphere. These events will be a time to share best-practices on specifics from national thought leaders. Focuses will include Christian school administration training, network building events, marketing tools, and online education to name a few.

Christian teachers and administrators are truly changing the world and we want to give them the recognition they deserve. Each year, the Herzog Foundation recognizes individuals that embody excellence in Christian education.
