Healthy schools stem from healthy leadership - and that starts with the school board. Whether you’re an independent school, church school, startup school, or established school, the Herzog Foundation Board Leadership Bootcamp is designed to improve the working relationship between the Board and school administration.

After surveying hundreds of Christian schools, Board Leadership Training surfaced as one of the most important training opportunities in Christian education. What are proper lanes of engagement? Where are there gaps in communication? How can we build a healthy leadership culture in our Christian school? These questions and more will be answered by coaching, mentorship, networking, and connecting at the Board Leadership Bootcamp.

Outcomes of the Bootcamp:

  • Network with your peers from across the country
  • Learn from best in class experts and practitioners on how to assess and improve your understanding of Board Leadership
  • Identify best practices for your school context with insight from individualized coaches
  • Invest in the relationship with your Head of School and Board
