What Past Participants Say

"The High School Leaders Forum provided both the inspiration and practical advice that we need to continue working toward the renewal of authentic Catholic education in the high school grades at our school. These two days probably saved us years of work!"

"This was an inspiring and eye opening conference on how a true classical school operates. A conference like this should be mandatory for all teachers and staff of schools transitioning or thinking of transitioning to a classical education."

"The Forum provided me with the opportunity to observe an intentionally Catholic, integrated, classical school AND hear from every category of stakeholders with the result that I left with inspiration and energy to contemplate how to take the next steps to lead my school forward."
