First Things First: Keeping Your Classical Christian School on Track by Kathleen F. Kitchin
Through God’s great provision, classical Christian schools have enjoyed a more than 25-year revival. Many schools apply classical Christian education well & are flourishing. Some schools are perhaps veering off track, while others may be in imminent danger of running off the rails.
Twelve chapters represent each constituent of a school together at a round table. Each chapter depicts one of these constituents. Topics range from your school’s vision & culture in the midst of culture to your school’s feeder churches & alumni. Through interviews and case studies, each chapter delves into healthy schools’ practices to keep first things first, common red flags that indicate trouble ahead, trends to track, a spectrum of strategies & suggestions from master educators, as well as opportunities for sober reflection as individuals & groups. Throughout, Christ is central.
