Classical Christian leaders and educators gather to navigate our new cultural moment...

and be encouraged to start back strong in the fall

Classical Christian schools are experiencing seismic changes due to Covid-19.  Classrooms are digital, families are quarantined, faculty juggle personal and school responsibilities, and school budgets are uncertain. When school resumes in the fall, will your school be ready?

Due to the current Pandemic and the extended effects on our daily lives, SCL is making possible something we’ve never made possible before.
 
For the first time ever, SCL has created an all-digital event that will be more relevant than ever for schools. You and your team can experience this livestream from the safety of home (or school, if governments reduce restrictions on gatherings in June).

  • Listen to expert speakers live.
  • Receive real-time advice and interaction in online breakout rooms.
  • Enjoy dynamic environments custom-built for YOUR school.

The truth is…administrators and teachers are working remotely, but no one has to work alone! At this year’s SCL National Online Conference, you and your team can get equipped!

  • Get access to live sessions from Eric Metaxas, John Lennox, and others
  • Connect with other school leaders
  • Hear from top thought leaders in our present situation
  • Enjoy the entire conference from the comfort of home (so no masks required!)

Engaging Workshops

Choose from over 50 speakers and virtual rooms to join. These shorter presentations will be a balance of speaker presentation and group Q&A. Each Zoom environment will have a trained facilitator and presenter to ensure a smooth and high-quality experience.

Interactive Panels

These scheduled sessions are track specific and will be moderated with three “subject matter experts”. You will be able to post questions to the panels. (Classical 101, Legal Issues Facing Schools…)

Rapid Fire Roundtables

Each 1-hour Zoom session will have participants who will present proven, practical solutions. Each participant has 5-7 minutes to share and will upload a summary PDF. You will walk away with six-eight new ideas to implement from your fellow educators from around the world! Each roundtable will be distinct based on one of the 10+ tracks offered.

Digital Patios

Plan to meet up on the “digital patio” with the SCL friends you love to catch up with every year! Choose from two kinds of Zoom Rooms: Private for your school only which you can use at defined times during the conference schedule to gather (after live keynotes, for instance, to share observations and applications) and Public for you to meet colleagues and share ideas (think of an after-hours casual cocktail party). Each public “Digital Patio” will have several pre-announced “Patio Hosts”!
