You have to see it – and hear it – to believe it! David Goodwin, our special guest and President of the Association of Classical Christian Schools, shares the newly published results of the highly regarded Cardus Educational study. Cardus, a top research firm commissioned by the ACCS, measured the influence of Classical Christian Schools on graduates up to twenty-five years later. Cardus worked with Notre Dame’s Sociology Department to conduct a highly scientific, unbiased, and first of its kind study. Released this month for the first time ever, this 89-page comparative study evaluates a broad spectrum of behaviors, attitudes, beliefs and life outcomes of alumni ages 24-42. Compared with five other types of schools (public, private, Catholic, evangelical Christian, and homeschool), Classical Christian (ACCS) schools produce alumni who stand out as having an influence in the real world. Listen in to hear some of the fascinating results!
