For the past ten years, our largest annual event aims to inspire and equip a growing community of Catholic educators to reclaim the Church’s full vision of education and to bring it to life in their classrooms. The Institute for Catholic Liberal Education’s 2022 National Conference was held at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. Hundreds of Catholic educators came together to deepen their understanding of the nature and purpose of Catholic education and its roots in the classical liberal arts tradition.

What Past Participants Say

"I am filled with gratitude for this conference, which has taught me so much, opened my eyes and articulated why our schools need Catholic liberal education. I am so tremendously grateful for ICLE and its mission, and hopeful for our schools when I see so much life, joy, and energy in the participants and so much guidance available."

"All of the topics for the plenaries and breakouts were extremely inspiring and practical. The conference was beautiful! It increased my confidence in Catholic education and in myself as a teacher!"

"I was reminded once again of the necessity to have a deep intimacy with Christ, most especially in the formation of souls. This conference exudes the Eucharistic love of Christ in the reverence of the Mass and holy hour, in the content of the talks, and in the secured time for fellowship."
