Hosted at an ICLE flagship member school, the High School Leaders Forum gives visitors the opportunity to see Catholic liberal education in practice at the high school level. The 2023 Spring High School Leaders Forum will be taking place at Martin Saints Classical High School in Oreland, PA. While the Fall High School Leaders Forum showcased a large, diocesan school, the Spring High School Leaders Forum will give participants the opportunity to observe a liberal arts curriculum at a small, independent school.
SCHEDULE: The program will begin at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday with a welcome reception and introductory talk, followed by a full day of classroom observations on Friday. On Friday evening, participants will be able to meet and talk with school leaders and faculty members at dinner. Saturday will feature seminars and workshops on various aspects of transitioning into, launching, and running a Catholic classical liberal arts high school, with special emphasis on curriculum and pedagogy. The program will conclude by 3 p.m. We strongly encourage attendees to stay for the full program.
COST: $750 per person. Registration fee includes school visit, seminars, workshops, and all lunches, dinners, and snacks during the course of the program. Due to the small program size, there is a limit of 5 registrants per school. Participants are responsible for their own accommodations.
Partial, needs-based scholarships are available for vowed religious and educators interested in participating in this program. Please contact office@
