COMING SOON… The ACSI FSCM Australia Pilot Report will be released at the upcoming NLS Research Symposium. In late 2020, seven Australian Christian schools, from diverse locations and states across the country, were recruited by Christian Schools Australia (CSA) to participate in an Australian pilot of the FSCI. Qualitative follow-up surveys enabled Australian school leaders to provide feedback on the usefulness of FSCI insights in real-time. The qualitative data was positive and showed that leaders are already using FSCI results in their school improvement plans and overall strategic planning. For each of the seven schools participating in the Australia pilot, the FSCI identified a set of five top strength areas and five major areas for growth (based on each school’s individual construct scores). This information is valuable not only for the participating schools themselves but also for the Christian school sector, as it provides a snapshot of the key strengths and areas for improvement for a sample of schools in CSA membership. The resulting research is groundbreaking both in terms of its scope and findings and provides the basis for the first-ever empirically validated model of flourishing in Christian schools. This download provides an overview of the instrument design and data analysis, the FSCM, the 2021 Australia pilot results, and understanding how the FSCI can be used in leading school-level change.

ACSI has continued to conduct analysis of the FSCI (Flourishing Schools Culture Instrument) data, as well as collect additional qualitative data on leaders’ use of FSCI insights at their schools. This report unpacks leadership constructs that are linked to school flourishing, as well as shares additional findings from ongoing research on how school leaders can develop their own practices that lead to flourishing-related outcomes for their schools. This report provides two sets of self-reflection guides—one for school leaders and one for school boards—with questions that can be used individually and collaboratively to strengthen leaders’ foundational, relational, and strategic practices. The Flourishing School Culture Model (FSCM) provides a research-validated path to flourishing for Christian schools in the domains of Purpose, Relationships, Teaching & Learning, Expertise & Resources, and Well-Being. The Flourishing School Culture Instrument (FSCI) continues to benefit Christian schools by measuring the core components of flourishing for their unique school cultures.

How do Christian schools flourish? What elements of school culture contribute to flourishing, and do some elements matter more than others? Is there a roadmap to school flourishing that can be validated by empirical research in Christian schools? In 2018, ACSI Research sought to answer these questions through rigorous research on Christian school cultures, by using a new research tool—the Flourishing School Culture Instrument (FSCI). This report provides detailed information about instrument design and fielding, as well as unpacks FSCI findings and the FSCM model for Christian educators which, when taken together, provide measurable signposts on a roadmap toward flourishing Christian schools. The Flourishing School Culture Model (FSCM) provides a research-validated path to flourishing for Christian schools in the domains of Purpose, Relationships, Teaching & Learning, Expertise & Resources, and Well-Being.

Over the past few decades, several trends have increasingly come to shape the landscape for private Christian education in the United States. The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) commissioned Barna Group to explore these trends more deeply, providing concrete data to inform schools about the faith and education dynamics of American parents. ACSI have compiled a report (Multiple Choice: How parents sort education options in a changing market). on trends that have shaped the landscape for private Christian education in the United States.

In 2017 and 2018, CSA completed one of the largest research projects undertaken on Christian schools in Australia. The Relational Schools Project was overseen by the Relational Schools Foundation in the United Kingdom under the direction of Dr Rob Loe and sought to measure relational quality and student wellbeing between students, teachers and students and with the community (between home and school). “Relational Proximity” is defined as a measure of the distance in the relationship between two people or organisations. The project involved 17 schools and over 13,000 student responses with nearly 1 million lines of data. The research findings of the Relational Schools project in Australia were significant in both scope and quality. The findings were clear: the level of Relational Proximity within Australian Christian schools was very high and the correlations with the UK data revealed that, on average, Christian Schools in Australia were exceeding the levels of schools from the initial research in the UK. A second phase of the project was also undertaken in 2019.

The CSA Schools Workforce Research Project represents a first step into the domains of workforce analytics and systematic resilience-building for many of the participating schools. Overall, the project has produced a substantial set of reflections for CSA as an Association to continue to reflect on ways in which it might support its member schools, perhaps including ongoing resources and support for schools to: • Continue to mature their practices with respect to workforce data collection, management and reporting • Continue to monitor and respond to findings with respect to levels of workforce resilience across member schools • Continue to offer a supportive community of practice, where learnings about lead workforce practices in schools are shared in order to benefit all member schools • Create ongoing member-wide opportunities to continue to explore the relationships in workforce data and student outcomes, in order to continue to improve governance, strategy and workforce performance across all Christian schools At an individual school level, we recommend that members: • Use the project as a catalyst for the development of stronger workforce data management practices so that future findings can increasingly inform school leaders’ strategic decision making at both an individual school, and a CSA member-wide level in the future • Establish programs to build resilience at the whole-of-school level (e.g. shaping a culture which fosters a resilient response among staff); amongst school leaders, teams and individual employees) in order to strengthen their likelihood to positively impact on student outcomes as a result.
