The Institute schedules one High School Leaders Forum at a flagship member school so that visitors can see Catholic liberal arts education in practice.

The format includes a welcome reception and introductory talk at 7 p.m. on Day 1, followed by a full day of observation on Day 2. Participants have the opportunity to observe classes and speak with faculty members about their experience of teaching in a Catholic classical liberal arts high school. In the evening of Day 2, participants are able to meet and talk with school leaders and faculty members at dinner. Day 3 features seminars and workshops on various aspects of transitioning to, launching, and running a Catholic classical liberal arts high school with special emphasis on curriculum and pedagogy. The program concludes by 3 p.m.

Cost: $750 per person (includes school visit, seminars, workshops, and all lunches, dinners, and snacks during the course of the program). Space is limited. Participants are responsible for their own accommodations; a list of recommended hotels will be provided.

What Past Participants Say

"The experience was joyful and challenging. I was continually inspired by the earnest labor that facilitators, teachers, and speakers expended -- for the benefits they will not see directly. It is challenging because I carry the responsibility to make good use of the gift of your blessings."

"This experience helped to put the puzzle pieces together. Not only do I have a better understanding of how the classical liberal arts approach looks, but I also have a renewed understanding of and desire to teach my students in a way that honors their humanity.
