The place for classical Christian school leaders to gather
ABOUT SCL COHORTS
It’s always good to know you’re not alone! Connect with others who are in the same role as you at classical Christian schools around the country. Groups are limited to 8-10 members so you can build relationships, share ideas, and support each other in small groups
Cohort leaders are seasoned professionals in their field. Based on years of experience, they will share best practices and help members avoid common pitfalls in their roles and equip you with the resources you need to be successful.
You don’t have to do your job alone and can get questions answered quickly! Cohort leaders will hold virtual “office hours” online twice a month to answer your specific questions between the regular group meetings.
WHY SCL COHORTS?
SCL is going to be running the cohorts program for heads with Keith, as well as launching up to five new cohort tracks for different school leadership areas, depending on interest.
The cohort program will run initially on a one year program with up to three years of unique content. (The heads cohorts are already well into a second year program). The long term plan is for this to be an ongoing multi-year offering with new resources added for those who want to continue.
CHOOSE YOUR COHORT
This program is for anyone serving as an academic dean in a classical Christian school. The goal of this program is to understand our role and responsibilities in our respective schools, establish a common language to describe our tradition, equip ourselves with tools to make meaningful change in curriculum and instruction, and develop strategies for investing in faculty culture.
Aspiring Heads of School
This cohort aims to support, equip, and encourage classical and Christian aspiring and future Heads through monthly training, collaboration and fellowship. “Aspiring” Heads includes: division Heads who are considering becoming a Head of School, interim Heads, board members who may be interested in becoming Heads, and/or faculty who would contemplate a Head of School role in the future.
This program will cover HR fundamentals, and give HR staff a chance to talk through issues, challenges and best practices of real-life scenarios with other cohort members. The goal of the first year is to understand the basics while working toward HR best practices.
HYBRID/COLLABORATIVE SCHOOL HEADS
This cohort is for school heads or board members of collaborative (hybrid, university-model, etc.). Whether you are thinking of starting a school, just started one, have been running one for years, or have just been hired by one, this cohort is for you. This cohort will work through the principles and strategies that are essential to building and sustaining a collaborative school. If you are currently sustaining a healthy school, it could be beneficial for you to join this cohort to compare notes and refine processes.
KINGDOM DIVERSITY & BELONGING
This cohort will provide a theological foundation and practical framework for engaging diversity in the classical Christian school. If you want to become more involved in supporting diversity, but don’t know where to start, this cohort is for you! Heads of school, division heads, deans, teachers, and other educators will benefit from this program. We will explore key concepts, practical strategies, and ways to avoid potential landmines.
This program is for anyone serving as a language teacher in a classical Christian school: while some priority may be given to Latin and Greek, the topics are chosen to be relevant to any language classroom. The goal of the first year is to cover cyclical topics that every language teacher must tackle throughout the school year.
