What are the key obstacles that prevent more high schools of choice from opening? Once opened, how are their challenges different from those faced by elementary and middle schools? What are the pitfalls to the typical comprehensive high school that high schools of choice can better remedy?

Zach Verriden, executive director of HOPE Christian Schools: Wisconsin Region, participated in a panel examining the challenges of high school choice and how to overcome them. The panelists revealed some fascinating insights about the high school “choice” landscape and where choice high schools will need to be focused in the future to best serve student needs.

What is Greater Purpose?

We chose the name “Open Sky Education” for a reason. We believe that we all do better work when we’re looking up.

Looking up often leads to the discovery of a cause or context that is greater than yourself. One that inspires you to serve selflessly and leads to more fulfilling work.

We refer to this as “Greater Purpose.” It’s what inspires our work in the classroom, in the board room, and in communities we serve. With this perspective, we can be true serving leaders, advancing ideas that are bigger than us, for the benefit of others.
