SCL Annual Conference

Education for Human Flourishing

CHARLESTON, SC | JUNE 23-26, 2021
IN PERSON | HYBRID | ONLINE

CONFERENCE WELCOME MESSAGE

We are grateful you are here! This conference is held to equip you with knowledge, connect you to a community, and inspire you to lead. This year's theme is education for human flourishing. That may seem like a giant task, and it is, but it is not a task we are left alone to achieve; God is with us. A biblical view of human flourishing provides a vision and means to achieve that flourishing - namely that our restless hearts find rest in God.

This foundation leads us to direct all glory to God as the source, and He is glorified when his creation, including heads of school, board members, teachers, administrators, and students, flourish! This brings us to our task. We, as classical Christian educators and leaders, flourish when we help our students and parents flourish. This view of flourishing encompasses the whole person being formed by the Great Tradition to shape their hearts, minds, and souls to glorify God in every vocation and situation.
Eric Cook
President of SCL

Experience The SCL Annual Conference

In 2020, the pandemic forced us to pivot to an all-virtual conference. This was met with astounding success, as triple the number of  guests joined us online from around the world. This year, the SCL plans to build on last year’s success by creating an all-new experience for our attendees, both online and in-person.

COVID-19 INFORMATION

From Francis Marion: Hotel Guidelines (updated May 1, 2021)

As of this point, we are still requiring masks while guests move about and are in all public areas of the hotel. However, we are allowing guests to meet with masks off once they are seated and eating/drinking. As the vaccinations continue to roll-out, we are certainly feeling more comfortable allowing higher numbers of guests to congregate. We will still have our air purifiers located throughout, along with hand sanitizer stations.
