What is the MRC?
The ACCS has been at the center of classical Christian education for over two decades. Now, we’re sharing the collective experience of our members and our experts through one web-based tool — the Member Resource Center (MRC). Members and their employees can get access to the new MRC, usually within seconds, at mrc.ClassicalChristian.org. The MRC has 9 major sections, which are described below.
|Section in the MRC||Popular Resources|
|The Job Exchange|
We actively recruit college students from classical Christian backgrounds, along with professionals and scholars, to place their CV’s into our talent pool. And, we collect more information and organize it so that you can find the right candidate for the right position.
|CV (employee resume) Database|
|The Curriculum Center|
We’ve compiled information about classical Christian curricula. When this portion of the site is fully integrated and used by our members, it will report how many schools use a particular curriculum, provide key information about its success, and provide cost per pupil information.
If you can buy it for a classical Christian school, we list it here. These are not vendors who pay us to be listed. Rather, they represent our best effort to find the best products and get your feedback on them. We place every product of interest to schools. Need security solutions? Paper suppliers? Curriculum? Look here. We will be adding to this area regularly.
|Companies, Service Providers|
Any project is made quicker with the right tool box. We mined the riches of our accredited member schools and friends to provide free access to everything from songs and chants, to forms (admission, surveys, or whatever), handbooks, training materials, and every other document a school might need. The best part, we’ve organized it all for you. New content is posted regularly.
|Documents (Budgets, handbooks, forms, etc.), Chants and Songs|
From publications, to the new ACCS Distinctive School Series, to Classis articles and, of course, ALL of our conference recording library, we have collected the vision and practice of classical Christian education in one place.
|Classis, Forum, The Classical Difference, Conference Talks|
|Training and Consulting|
Find live training and consultants, upcoming ACCS and other outside events, and forums, as well as webinars and resources from our partners like Classical U.
|Speakers, Trainers, Events|
Everything a member school needs to successfully navigate ACCS accreditation.
The ACCS has a growing number of student services available. Our contests and upcoming alumni services are all managed through this area.
Last, but not least, we are working on the ability to collect data from our member schools in a more efficient way. This will allow us to customize information requests and offer various types of reporting. Heads-of-schools can get information that is more tailored to the specific question they have. More importantly, schools will be able to directly correct and improve the information that displays for their school in the popular “School Finder.”
