Ever since the explosion of national and even international interest in classical, Christian education, due largely to the 1991 publication of Doug Wilson’s book, Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning, a multitude of cottage industries providing classical materials has arisen. Logos School, the pioneering school in this biblically-based approach to education, was the first to produce and provide a great many of these curricular and administrative materials. With the inception of the Association of Classical Christian Schools (ACCS) in 1993 and its national conferences, some regular, initial training of teachers and administrators began. However, the need and demand for increasing depths of training quickly outgrew the supply of actual training opportunities and resources available. In response, in 1995 Logos School began providing an annual week of practical training every summer on its campus. Other ACCS schools subsequently began similar programs, also during the summer months.
Nevertheless, even these programs are not adequate to meet the exponentially increasing need such schools have for year-round, easily accessible training for their teachers and administrators. In addition, a virtually unaddressed, but highly critical need for board member training has made itself known in the experiences of many classical schools.
Therefore, Logos School is seeking to address this great need for staff and board training through the creation and work of LEAF.
The Logos Education Advancement Foundation (LEAF) exists to promote the unique education provided by a rigorous and delightful application of the classical, Christian (cC) philosophy. This promotion will be done largely through practical assistance to cC schools and personnel through a range of consultation services. The consultations are based on experience and insights gained over 35 years of cC administration/teaching.
