winter symposium

for Heads & Boards

About the Symposium

Combustible culture.
Clashing values.
Mercurial legal terrain.
Abounding busyness.

Running and leading a classical Christian school during these complex times can be a challenge. Healthy leadership is more important than ever. 

The Winter Symposium focuses on two critical areas of leadership for every classical school –  Heads and Boards. Four top-tier speakers will engage us on timely topics: 

  • A. Larry Ross: Communicating a Classical, Christian Mission and Vision in a Critical, Combustible Culture
  • Justin Earley: Habits of Purpose for an Age of Distraction
  • Brad Layland:  How to Maximize Capital Campaign Success and Build The Ideal Annual Fund Strategy 
  • Leslie Moeller:  Playing Offense in a Chaotic Culture: Risk Management Fundamentals 

So Board members and Heads of School, escape the winter blues and join us this year in the beautiful sunshine and beaches of St. Augustine, FL. Come away equipped and encouraged to take on the tackle challenges back home.

Explore the history, richness, and beauty of our nation's oldest city, St. Augustine, FL. Sites such as Castillo de San Marcos, Cathedral Basilica, and the nation’s oldest school house beckon history buffs to the historic downtown area, as culinary goldmines dot brick-lined streets with European flair. Excellent dining options reflect the city's 450-year multicultural heritage and the Spanish Colonial Renaissance. With centuries-old buildings, hidden courtyards, coastal inlets, beautiful beaches, horse-drawn carriages, and more, there is much to see and do while you're in St. Augustine.

Explore these great restaurants and coffee options while you are at the Symposium.


This weekend best serves Board Chairs and Heads of School working in tandem. However, any combination of Board members and the Head of School, or even one or the other, will certainly benefit from this time of equipping and encouragement on timely topics.
