ICLE is firmly and joyfully committed to the teachings of the Catholic Church, including on such issues as marriage, gender, and family.  After all, every educational endeavor is governed by anthropology, the understanding of who the human person is and what he is created for. The Catholic Educator Formation and Credential program is built upon a Christian anthropology and deeply interwoven with the Catholic faith, and the purpose of the program is not only to equip teachers for the classroom but also to deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ and love for His Church.
