2019 Autumn Christian School Leadership Retreat

September 26th – September 27th, 2019

@ Queen's Landing Vintage Hotel

Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada

You know, and we know, that heads of school—principals—are not the only leaders in your schools. You know, and we know, that curricular and pedagogical insight isn’t the only competency required to offer a fine Christian school education.

That’s why we’ve designed this retreat.

First of all, this retreat is for your whole leadership team—principal, finance and development personnel, vice-principals, department heads, maybe even your board chair—whomever influences the strategic and management decisions at your school.

Secondly, this retreat focuses on the legal, business, and financial competencies of your team. We’re bringing in star quality speakers and session leaders with decades of experience in successful operation and management of Christian schools.

The business of transforming and unifying a Christian school around a common vision demands incredible personal balance, high levels of energy, and insight to understand and respond to the complexities of institutional change.  It is unrealistic for the competent school leader to maintain high levels of effectiveness without drawing from and leaning on a professional team of support and encouragement. This conference puts forward a plethora of best insights available on: building school leadership teams, school finance, school governance for large and small schools, education law and relevant polices, leadership myths, magic and meaning. You are invited to glean, learn, be inspired and take in the beauty of the Niagara wine country with a taste or two.

Plan on bringing your entire leadership team (including principal, vice-principal(s), department/area heads, and finance, development, and communications personnel).
