"His Loved and His Own:

Christian Schooling as a Model of the Kingdom"


From toddlers to 'teens, from youngsters to young adults, from early education through college-preparatory courses, Christian schools must be committed to educating our students and representing to each of them the love and lordship of Jesus Christ in every aspect of our work: mission, management, marketing, master-planning and the money necessary to operate our school.


Founded in 1984, THE PAIDEIA CONFERENCE continues to be the only annual event continuously committed to strenghtening the financial base and fully funded mission of the Christian school.


Last year, we celebrated the 30th anniversary of THE PAIDEIA CONFERENCE with delegates from across North America and overseas.
