Planting an Urban Classical Christian School


by
Russ Gregg November 9, 2018


Presented at:
2018 SCL Annual Conference

ABSTRACT:

The education of at-risk youth is the civil rights movement of our day. Public and charter approaches can’t get to the heart of the crisis. Come learn about the story and distinctives of Hope Academy and its "start small, dream big and grow slow" strategy. Participants will walk through an overview of the school's model for parent engagement and its development cycle for events. Time for discussion and Q&A will be allowed.
