Testimonial

“I so appreciate the MISF and the affiliation, accountability, and support it provides. As a very small, unique, Christian school, it helps to belong to a large organization.”
Michelle Lee Thompson, Dean & Executive Director, Hand in Hand Christian Montessori
“I couldn’t do my job without the support of MISF. The School Leadership Conference is cost effective leadership retreat for our leadership team addressing our greatest needs. The Development, Marketing and Technology workshops during the year are excellent. Our staff always comes back with ideas to implement and perhaps best of all, people to network with after the workshop.”
Wyayn Rasmussen, Head of School, Academy of Whole Learning
“As a private school in Minnesota, we are very appreciative of the efforts that MISF provides as they lobby on behalf of all private schools.”
Randy Pfeifle, Principal, Edgerton Christian Elementary School
“MISF seminars always provide a great forum for meeting others in similar roles, sharing stories and ideas, and reassuring each other that ‘we’re all in this together!’ Thank you!”
Technology Seminar Attendee
“MISF brings in top quality, renown, helpful speakers and presenters that give up to date, pertinent information. You don’t leave without something new to work with and try.”
Teresa Nickel, Director of Admissions & Marketing, Park Christian School
