Help Us Empower Schools by Supporting Giving Challenge

Dear Friends,

Our present and future mission remains the same at CLEF, to empower our schools to deliver innovative, quality education in a Christian environment. This is accomplished through the dedication and actions of our leaders, teachers, principals and faithful supporters.

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. ―Romans 8:38-39 (NKJV) One way we show our faith in the certainty of Jesus’ love is by demonstrating His love and generosity to our fellow humans.


Remote Innovative Teacher Institute

Our teachers and administrators were busy with two weeks of remote learning through our Innovative Teacher Institute. We had over twenty different guest speakers, many from our own network of schools, and 533 participation hours over the two weeks. With four sessions to choose from each day, teachers were thrilled for the chance to learn more about how to become even stronger teachers during remote learning. We’re excited for our next training series this summer.
