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.
Title funds (federal monies administered by your Local Educational Agency) may be available to help offset participant costs related to this event. Past participants in this event have successfully secured title funding. Please review some helpful information here.
A limited number of partial, needs-based scholarships are available for priests and vowed religious interested in participating in this program. To apply for a scholarship, please complete this scholarship request form.
