Urban School Leaders Gathering Header

Everyone and Every school can flourish.
As a leader, you can too!

Whether you join the Flourishing Schools Institute March 14-16 or not, ACSI and Spreading Hope Network invite you to a retreat gathering of current or emerging education leaders serving an urban school environment.

This engaging time will cover three topics:

  • The Leader’s Purpose
  • The Leader as Steward
  • The Leader as Servant

The aim of the time is fellowship, refreshment, and strategic consultation on issues you are facing. The heart of our time together will be small group “Consultancy Sessions” to help you gather insight from fellow leaders on a practical or strategic issue you are facing in your school. Our prayer is that each leader will leave with renewed zeal, deepened insights, and new peers to reach out to in the future.
