Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.

– Colossians 2:7, NLT


Growing. Excelling. Thriving. Flourishing.

Christian school leaders love to hear these words describe the students, faculty and staff, board members, and families connected to their school. GCSLS 2019, sponsored by eight Christian school associations and multiple higher education and business partners, is building on the success of our 2017 gathering with a second gathering in 2019. Bring your team and join school leaders from all levels of Christian education (early education, elementary, secondary, and higher education) from more than 25 countries to share best practices and connect with inspirational experts to stimulate innovative growth and improvement for your school.
