Teacher teaching BibleLeaders of private Christian schools from throughout the globe will be gathering in San Antonio, Texas, January 30th through February 1st for their second biennial summit.

With innovation, growth, and improvement in mind, Lynn Swaner of the Association of Christian Schools International says the leaders and educators in attendance of the upcoming Global Christian School Leadership Summit will be focusing on challenges and opportunities in education.

"By that we don't mean the latest trends or educational fads. What we mean is given all of the changes in education in the past few decades, and that includes technology but also cultural, social, market changes, how do we position Christian schools to develop the best answers for all of that teaching," Swaner explains.

Her organization partnered with Barna Research on a 2017 trend-tracking report that shows today's younger parents are more likely to have attended a Christian school than those of past generations.

"In other words, if a parent went to a Christian school, and there are more parents out there today than ever before that have been to Christian schools, they're more likely to choose that option for their child," Swaner says.

Roughly 1,000 Christian educators from 100 countries representing about 25,000 Christian schools are expected to attend the summit.
