The Herzog Foundation announced its SchoolBox program will help launch over 60 new Christian schools this fall. The Foundation released SchoolBox in November 2022 to meet the growing nationwide demand for Christ-centered education. Since then, hundreds of prospective school founders have signed up for the program and 68 of those founders have committed to opening schools this year.
“As the school choice movement grows, we’ve seen a consequent need for more Christian schools across the country,” said Herzog Foundation President Darrell Jones. “Thanks to SchoolBox and these 68 school founders, families in 34 states will have unprecedented access to Christian education.”
To support school founders, SchoolBox provides a combination of coursework and mentorship at zero cost to the schools.
“I can’t imagine starting a school without SchoolBox,” said Kalos Christian Academy Founder Amber Kaspar. “The experience and wealth of information from those who have gone before us helped accelerate the process of starting Kalos Christian Academy. The SchoolBox courses helped create a structure to execute our school’s mission and vision, while the mentor shared wisdom to help refine each stage of the school launch process.”
Kalos Christian Academy will launch on September 5, 2023, in Kansas City, Missouri.
“I’m so grateful for the support of the Herzog Foundation in providing many resources in SchoolBox and through their staff and mentors. It’s been helpful to not just have their spiritual support and prayers along this journey but real life and practical insights and best practices as well,” said Capitol Hill Christian Academy Founder Annie Hsiao. “Our start-up journey has felt similar to running a marathon, and their encouragement and help has often felt like getting a cup of cold water from the sidelines at critical milestones.”
