Entrepreneurship in Christian Education
New Christian schools, micro schools, and cooperatives are popping up all over the country. To assist these Christian education entrepreneurs, we created an online resource called SchoolBox. The lessons, resources, and mentorship offered in SchoolBox not only catalyze the creation of new schools, but also help parents and administrators navigate the start-up process every step of the way. Whether you are starting a K-12 school or a neighborhood cooperative, SchoolBox is relevant to all Christian entrepreneurs and students.
