Next Intensive Begins September 25, 2023
* Registration Deadline, September 15, 2023 *
An intensive program designed and led by ACCS Heads of School with real world experience in classical Christian leadership.
This course is designed for those who are looking to start a school or are in their first five years of operation.
Spanning five months, this course will provide actionable steps and realistic measurements intended to incrementally “move the ball down the field.” Each participant’s “end zone” will vary, from confirming a call to open a school, to gathering the human and financial resources, to setting in place the basic elements of planning for day one, to understanding the role of Head of School and implementing best practices in school administration. In each case, this course will strengthen your faith, enhance your understanding of classical Christian education, and allow you to benefit from others determined to serve Christ and His Kingdom through classical Christian education.
Who is this for? Leadership at startup schools or at new schools in their first five years of operation.
What will I get? One-on-one answers to questions from both peers and experienced leaders who have been there, a better understanding of classical Christian education, and a plan created using specialized tools and templates.
What will I go home with? Actionable steps and realistic measurements intended to incrementally “move the ball down the field,” and a strong support network moving forward.

The average tenure of a school administrator is less than five years and more than 50% of school startups fail. The ACCS Accelerator exists to reverse these trends by increasing longevity of schools and their leaders. Charles Spurgeon wrote, “The best education is in the best things.” At ACCS, we believe that the best schools should be led by the best leaders. The Accelerator is just one of the ways that we are elevating our schools by equipping leaders of startup schools and those in their first five years of operation.
