    Interested in starting a Christian School in your community? Whether you’re dreaming about it or already taking steps to start a Christian school, this event is designed for you. At this two-day conference, we will take you from "I want to start a Christian school" to actually knowing the next steps to launch!

    There is a movement towards educational choice, and it’s time to offer more styles and models of Christian education. Parents, pastors, churches, and entrepreneurs all across the US are standing up to reclaim our children’s education for Christ. And we’re here to help.
