Our Programs

We are on a mission to advance Christian education with comprehensive programs designed to launch, promote, and strengthen Christian education settings across the nation.

Our Programs

The Lion

Christian Education News

The Lion carries articles covering a wide range of issues facing American families and culture, especially related to the education of children. In covering these topics, articles will also touch on aspects of parents, family life, faith, government, and other relevant cultural topics. We aim to produce timely, critical, must-read news articles and resources for families, educators, and leaders.

Herzog Foundation Institute

Best-in-Class Training Opportunities

The Herzog Foundation Institute provides training, events, and conferences to address relevant topics within the Christian education sphere. These events are led by national thought leaders and experts in subjects such as marketing, donor development, and culture building. All training events are specifically designed for Christian educators, leaders and organizations with their unique needs in mind. Offered each month in Kansas City, Missouri and other locations throughout the U.S., Institute events are plentiful and fully funded by the Herzog Foundation for Christian educators and administrators of all denominations.


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.

HF Homeschool

Equipping Homeschool Families

HF Homeschool is a free, online resource designed to equip new or seasoned homeschooling parents seeking to start a co-op or similar group in their community. The program provides training, mentorship and intentional connection with state homeschooling organizations. The HF Homeschool platform offers an 8-step guide to starting a homeschool or co-op; one-to-one mentorship opportunities; and access to best practices, policies and resources to ensure a quality education.

Herzog Foundation Ambassadorships

Professional development for recent college graduates

The Herzog Foundation offers year-long ambassadorships to young leaders seeking to make an impact in K-12 education nationwide. Each ambassador becomes fully immersed in Herzog Foundation programs and operations in Smithville, Missouri with the opportunity to travel around the country. If you are an aspiring leader who’s wanting to make a difference, the Herzog Foundation Ambassadorship program will provide the skills and experiences necessary to advance your goals.

The American Dream Speaker Series

Important Conversations For The Next Generation

We host conversations with national thought leaders on our nation’s future which the next generation will inherit.

We’ve hosted leaders such as Former Education Secretary Betsey DeVos and Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
