Welcoming Students of All Abilities

New Series Addresses Importance of Inclusion in Christian Education 

Three friendsThis winter, join the Center for the Advancement of Christian Education (CACE) and CLC Network for a conversation about supporting students with disabilities in Christian schools. We invite you to listen in on the blog and webinar series, which will address frequently asked questions and feature guest panelists who will share their journey of implementing inclusive education.

Dream with us about the future of Christian education for students of all abilities by adding your comments and questions to the first blog post,  "Christian School Identity and Disability: Questions of Faith and Community" by Dan Beerens. We will address as many questions as we are able in this blog and webinar series.
