Abstract (Summary)

Trust is a topic that has been written about hundreds of times, still it is hard to define. In the literature, trust and relationships are grouped together as going hand-in-hand. In Christian education circles, trust is something that is implied to be present. This research explored the presence of trust in a suburban Christian school in the Midwest. The research explored trust from the perception of three different stakeholder groups (staff, parents, and board) from the study school. The researcher used data sets that included: The Visible Elements of Trust Inventory (VETI)- online survey, focus groups- by stakeholder type, and secondary data from the study schools annual surveys. In this case study, the study school’s stakeholders’ perceived trust was demonstrated and hindered through communication and relationships.
