As a member, ADF attorneys can review your ministry’s governing documents. You’ll also get access to legal resources, updates on legislation, cases, and more.

Here’s What Our Members Are Saying

SCL was a place to connect with other teachers on the front lines. It’s easy to feel like we’re out there alone, but seeing how many other teachers are out there fighting the good fight, and having the chance to hear their stories and learn from them, reminds me of why I got into teaching in the first place.
– SCL Member

I appreciated the opportunity to connect with others who work in positions like mine and talk about issues we’ve had at our schools. We could laugh, share about tough situations, and offer encouragement to one another.
– SCL Member

SCL continues to provide classical Christian educators with the best of the tradition alongside an approach to the culture that is honest without being anxious. This is a much-needed approach in our polarized climate, and it makes attending the conference refreshing and inspiring. I can’t wait for next year!
