Edifide believes that the investment in leadership development for its members is a way to build strength and capacity for the future. We encourage our members to take up leadership in their schools, in their communities and in their circles of influence. We also provide opportunities for our members to serve on the board and committees of Edifide.

In a combined effort among Christian Schools International (CSI), Calvin College’s Graduate Program in Education, the Ontario Alliance of Christian Schools (OACS), the Ontario Christian School Administrators Association (OCSAA) and Edifide, the Educational Leadership Development Institute (ELDI) has been born as an annual event in Ontario, Canada.

ELDI is a week-long summer institute specifically designed to help teachers without administrative positions experience firsthand what it might mean to be a leader and/or an administrator in a Christian school community.
