PAIDEIA, Inc. continues to support and encourage PRIVATE SCHOOL COLLOQUIUM and its monthly ZOOM discussions.  These conversations among non-public school leaders across North America and overseas take up “timely topics” and provide participants with unmatched opportunities to share their own experience and learn from others in similar or different circumstances. 

The Colloquium resumes in mid-February.  For dates and times, see www.pscolloquium.com.

  • In 1952, Dr. Frank E. Gaebelein, founding headmaster of The Stony Brook School, delivered lectures at both Dallas Theological Seminary and Denver Seminary.  From these lectures developed his benchmark book The Pattern of God’s Truth: Problems of Integration in Christian Education, first published in 1954 by Oxford University Press.  Since then this remarkable book has never been out of print.  It continues to inform and challenge teachers in Christian schools, colleges/universities, and seminaries.


  • Dr. Lockerbie is available to address the board, administration, faculty, and staff of your school after they have read or re-read The Pattern of God's Truth.  For information, contact dbl@paideia-inc.com.
