School Leaders Forum

April 7-9, 2022
Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School, Denver, CO

Program Description

Hosted at an ICLE flagship member school, registrants observe classes, speak with faculty, and participate in seminars and workshops on various aspects of running a Catholic classical liberal arts school with special emphasis on curriculum and pedagogy. The 2022 Spring School Leader’s Forum will take place at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School in Denver, CO.

Every year, the Institute schedules several School Leaders Forums at flagship member schools so that visitors can see Catholic liberal arts education in practice. The program will begin at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 7th, followed by a one-day visit to the flagship school on Friday. Participants will take a tour of the school, have the opportunity to visit classes in session and to talk with the school’s faculty members about their experience of teaching in a Catholic classical liberal arts school. On Friday evening, participants will have the opportunity to meet and talk with school leaders and faculty members at dinner. Saturday will feature seminars and workshops on various aspects of transitioning to and running a Catholic classical liberal arts school with special emphasis on curriculum and pedagogy. The program will conclude 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). Due to the small program size, there is a limit of 2 registrants per school. Participants are responsible for their own accommodations.

HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE NOVEMBER 2021 SCHOOL LEADERS FORUM

What Past Participants Say

"The School Leaders Forum enabled me to witness the splendor of the liberal arts in action, ponder how it can be reflected in my own teaching, and begin anew to experience wonder and joy in learning. The practical nature and ability to interact with others who are also exploring this was a productive experience also."

"I am deeply invigorated after these three days. To be able to see it in action and speak with the teachers and staff about their lived experiences—well done, ICLE!"

"Incredible experience due to access into the classrooms with teachers and students present. All faculty was genuinely respectful of one another and appeared to be outstanding in their field. Our staff is coming back!"
