Creating a Climate for Educational Shalom
It takes the intentional outlook and purposeful action of everyone within an academic institution to create a community of educational shalom. The pursuit of shalom should impact daily practices, alleviate barriers, and inform strategic planning.  A commitment to work through the messy struggle toward wholeness is necessary if we are to see all stakeholders flourish, as well fulfill the mission statements of our Christian schools.

Exclusion and Embrace in the Christian School
As communities are formed, they by definition include some and exclude others.  As followers of Jesus, empowered by the depthless love of God, we are called to form communities that embody that love. So the question is, how do we create communities that bring clarity to who we are and what we believe but also allow people to engage and explore in meaningful ways those beliefs? How do our Christian schools specifically embody the kind of community that Christ came to inaugurate? This session will explore these questions, taking significant direction from the work of Miroslav Volf of the Yale Center for Faith and Culture and his book, Exclusion and Embrace: A Theological Exploration of Identity, Otherness, and Reconciliation.

Tov: A Three-Lettered Word That Shapes School Culture
Christians have grown accustomed to revelations of abuses in our most respected organizations. Sadly, Christian communities are susceptible to abuse, and schools are not immune. Abuses occur most frequently when Christians neglect to create a culture that resists toxicity and fail to focus on character as the baseline qualification for leadership. How do we create school cultures that resist abuse and toxicity? The answer lies in a mysterious and beautiful little Hebrew word in Scripture that we translate “good,” the word tov. Tov provides a map for school leaders as they seek to create cultures that reflect the goodness of God.

Transforming Our Relationships and Schools through Cultural Humility
In our journey as Christian educators, we work with explicit intention to reflect the image of God and be distinctively different as we move about this world, changing the lives of children. However, interacting, serving, or hearing the relevancy and impact of the stories from those that we view as “distinctly different” from us, can often bring challenges, isolation, rejection, and fear in lieu of safe and loving spaces. Usually, the missing accountability exists within the quality of “humility.” The ability to make emotional and spiritual suspended space for the stories of another frequently creates the very thing we desire—healthy, thriving environments that produce healthy, thriving, and valued humans. This session will examine humility and its power and impact in transforming educational settings.

Building Comfort and Capacity for Change
We know how organizations bring about change; it is not a mystery. Unfortunately, most schools are not rich in change-focused DNA; it is just not part of what we have been trained to do well. The good news is that, contrary to most mythology, changing schools is not so much hard as it is uncomfortable. Based on work with more than 250 schools in the last decade, Grant will share the keys to building both a comfort and a capacity for change in your school.

Collective Leadership: A Christian Approach to Sustainable School Improvement
Leadership is more biblical, sustainable, and effective when we engage the talents and expertise of others. The lone leader will not flourish in the current educational environment. In over thousands of surveys in public and independent schools, we have identified seven conditions that are necessary for improved outcomes for students. Christian leaders are the confidently humble catalysts that today’s schools need to thrive. We explore the possibilities for collective leadership, networked improvement communities, and the leading role Christians will play.

Hewing Stones of Hope from a Mountain of Despair
When leaders are honest, they admit that the most difficult part of leading is not the challenges outside the organization, but the resistance inside the organization—from their own people—when challenged by the changes necessary for the mission to succeed. In this seminar, Tod Bolsinger, author of the best-selling Canoeing the Mountains: Leading in Uncharted Territory, and Tempered Resilience: How Leaders are Formed in the Crucible of Change, will give us the formational practices needed for leaders to survive the sabotage that always comes and develop the resilience for facing down resistance when a leader is in the crucible of change.

How Schools Have Become the New Field Hospitals and What It Means to Your School
For more than two decades schools have been trying to solve the teacher and student engagement problem. This presentation outlines how we arrived at a place where teachers are battle fatigued and students are emotionally unequipped for the rigors of learning, as well as charts a redemptive path forward from the unsustainable strain on our schools. I will propose how we might rethink our mission in the context of a post-pandemic society and consider the metaphor of a field hospital to frame our conversation. Participants will gain an understanding of why the demands have gotten increasingly harder and consider steps to revitalize our work and prepare students as resilient learners who can lead under any conditions.

Making Christian Education Accessible and Affordable for All: Emerging Breakthroughs
While polling data shows high demand for Christian education, national and global enrollment data shows Christian education is a very small portion of the overall educational landscape. Financial and geographic barriers hinder many desiring families and their children from accessing the education of their choice. In this session we will explore emerging breakthroughs which show promise in making Christian education exponentially more accessible and affordable for many additional families in the U.S. and globally.

Making the Most of School Choice Policy in the United States
Unlike families in Australia, Canada, and many European countries, families in the United States generally do not have access to public funding for attending private schools. There are, however, some exceptions and school choice programs that provide families with financial assistance are growing in popularity. In 1990, there were only five such programs. Today there are nearly 70 with many more proposed in legislatures across many states. Dr. Albert Cheng will provide an overview of the school choice programs across the United States, describe how they work, and offer considerations for school leaders who may wish to avail themselves of those opportunities.

Together We Rise: Hope, Courage, and Opportunity in Times of Crises
We never know what a day will hold, but as believers, we know who holds our days. When we commit our lives to Jesus and begin this marvelous walk of faith, we don’t know what our journey will entail, but we are called to trust in our mighty and sovereign God who knows us intimately and holds us in the palm of His hands. When tragedy rocked the Minnehaha Academy community, we were shaken, but our trust was renewed as we relied on God’s strength and power to shepherd us through very dark days toward a path of hope for new things that only He can bring.

Why Character Creates the Future
Preparing students for a rapidly changing world requires that they learn to embrace change while developing character—the ability to choose well no matter what! Schools play a vital role in creating the conditions for students to grow in this. How can educators engage their students in this journey? Is it possible to make simple changes that change the aim from building compliance to character? Why is relational connection and challenge so important in the process? In this session Dave will equip educators to partner with students as they develop the muscle of character in today’s complex and rapidly changing world.
