More about our story…

Schools United began in 2015 with just a few heads of Christian schools in South Florida getting together over a meal to talk, build relationships, learn from each other, and pray for one another. These gatherings then grew into more regular meetings with dozens of school administrators.

In 2019, God blessed us with the opportunity to program our first-ever Professional Development Day Conference with over 700 attendees from our area and beyond. More than a dozen Christian schools have joined Schools United in the past few years, and we look forward to welcoming more schools in the years to come.

Developing disciples of Jesus Christ is a calling you don’t have to walk out alone. We believe that, by working together and sharing ideas, we can grow as educational leaders and dream about the future of Christian schools within our communities. Join us on this journey as we aim to glorify God through the power of unity!

We Believe

“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” —John 17:20-23
