School Leaders Forum – Spring



To be notified when registration for the next School Leaders Forum becomes available, please click the “Register” button at the top of this page.

The highly popular School Leaders Forum opens the doors to an ICLE flagship school to give educators an opportunity to see Catholic liberal arts education in practice at a lower school (pre-K through grade 8). Registrants observe classes, speak with faculty, and participate in seminars and workshops on various aspects of transitioning into, launching, and running a Catholic liberal arts school with special emphasis on curriculum and pedagogy. The program size is limited. Due to the limited size of the program, the number of registrants from each school is limited to two.


The program begins on Thursday at 7 p.m. and concludes by 2:30 p.m. on Saturday. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend the full program.

COST FOR 2024:

$795 per person

The cost includes all program sessions and materials, and all lunches, dinners, and refreshments, beginning with the Thursday evening welcome reception and concluding with lunch on Saturday. Breakfast is not included.

What Past Participants Say

"The lesson observation brought passion and life to the theory. The teachers shared the joy I hope to see in our own halls."

"I had a delightful time and I enjoyed the rhythm of the days where we observed classrooms, listened to lectures, asked questions, and dined together. The pace wasn’t too fast so I had time to collaborate with my colleagues also. The daily Mass was awesome!"

"With the information I now have and the things I have learned, I feel more equipped than ever to bring the greatest glory to God that He allows in my little classroom."
