Leading a classical, Christian school is an increasingly complex endeavor requiring inspirational vision casting, sophisticated management skills, and careful risk management. If the unique business model of independent schools, the increasing cultural hostility to the basic tenants of Christianity and the Western Canon, and the challenge of identifying and attracting and retaining like-minded families were not challenge enough, the 21st Century classical, Christian school must also navigate the increasingly mercurial legal terrain involving contracts, torts, employment discrimination regulations, and gender issues.
In this Coaching Call, we will highlight the major sources of institutional risk which require regular review by your school’s leadership. You can also join us at the February Winter Symposium to explore in more depth these potential threats and your school’s best defenses.
