I love being able to be with folks from all over the country who are passionate about pursuing classical Christian education!

Highly inspiring and motivating to fight the good fight (i.e., it “renewed our strength”). It was also a great source of resources – books, websites, people to connect with.

[The conference] reorients us to the truth that God is calling us to a work that changes the very center of a person.

I always leave equipped and inspired to continue the task at hand. Thank you for that.

There’s nothing quite like the ACCS annual conference. The healthy mix of encouragement and (good) overwhelming is incomparable.

I appreciate the willingness to engage in topics that teachers and schools are facing, and dealing with those issues in a straightforward and gospel centered way.
