Our Story

Birthed from a series of four original Convenings hosted by The Christian Education Charitable Trust, The Maclellan Fellows are a community of Christian Headmasters who saw the value of peer-learning. Although successful, The Christian Education Charitable Trust saw the need to continue this connection when each Headmaster returned to his or her school.

We asked ourselves: How can we continue to facilitate an environment where creative ideas, common problems, and valued experiences are shared? In line with our commitment to innovation, we seek to provide an online platform not to replace peer relationships, but to enhance them. To succeed and secure the future of Christian education for the next generation, we must work together to solve our common problems, for we not only share a common position, but a common Kingdom.

Our Mission

We are committed to providing an online platform to creatively discuss trends and issues facing us, as Christian Headmasters, today and in our future. To this end, we will cultivate a safe environment to continue peer-learning through our online forums, weekly articles, mentorship initiative, and yearly Convening.

Our Vision

  • The landscape of Christian education is ever-changing. As we press into a future that is uncertain, we, at Christian Education Central, will build a network where Christian educators of all capacities can share access to cutting-edge technology, research, and professional development.
  • We will foster a safe, productive environment where we discuss the future of Christian education.
  • As methods and technology change over time, our need to cooperate, as a community of Christian educators, remains constant.
  • This network will cross state, denominational, and cultural lines as we facilitate a learning community where we are all the teachers and we are all the learners.
  • It is our hope to be the leading voice for the future of Christian education; however, we cannot accomplish this alone. Join the cause of connection.

Core Values

Christ: We will honor Christ above and before all else.

Collaboration: We are at our strongest when we work together.

Innovation: The strongest ideas are often the most creative.

Scalability: The most creative ideas must be replicated.

Where does the name, “Maclellan” come from? 2017-09-15T08:13:27+00:00

Formed in 1945, The Maclellan Foundation is one of the largest Christian family foundations in the United States. With a history of giving to Christian education, The Maclellan Foundation formed another entity: The Christian Education Charitable Trust. As members of CECT, we seek to always honor the legacy built before us; hence the name “Maclellan Fellows.” For more information on the Maclellan Foundation, please visit Maclellan.net
