Summer Conference 2025

June 25-28, 2025
Gaylord Texan Resort Grapevine – Dallas, Texas

Classical Chrisitan education is ultimately about the glory of God through Christ. Christ’s preeminence has profound implications for our work, defining our understanding of human nature, knowledge, and relationships. Our educational goals are rooted in a person – Jesus Christ. Jesus is the full expression of what it means to be human. He is Truth and Wisdom incarnate. In Christ, the apostle Paul says, are “the the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” (Col 2:8) Christ is the centerpiece of history, the Creator of the universe, the Redeemer of mankind, and the Sustainer of all things.How does our work as educators fully reflect our understanding of and submission to His Lordship? How does it shape our practices, instruction, culture, leadership, and operations? How can we better shape our students with a robust Christ-like ethos?   Join us, and educators around the world, as we consider the profound implications of the preeminence of Christ in our work. Over two days, we will explore:

 

  • The beauty of Christ’s preeminence and glory
  • The theology of formation
  • How to shepherd students
  • The tensions between our classical and Christian commitments
  • How our Christian commitments shape the arts and sciences
  • The complexities of spiritual formation in an institutional setting
