Join the Renewal of Catholic Education!

The Institute for Catholic Liberal Education (ICLE) inspires and equips Catholic educators to renew today’s Catholic schools by drawing on the Church’s tradition of education, which frees teachers and students for the joyful pursuit of faith, wisdom, and virtue.

Dedicated to preserving and renewing Catholic K-12 schools, we work with schools and dioceses all over the United States and beyond. Our more than 230 Member Schools seek to serve the Church today by providing an authentically Catholic education. The schools are always looking for teachers devoted to their faith. Many do not require a formal teaching credential or degree, but all are interested in the Catholicity of their candidates.

To help Catholic schools in their search for ideal candidates, we provide a free job board on which openings can be posted for school leader, administrator, or teaching positions.

Candidates can search our job board for specific openings, and post their résumés through our secure résumé portal. This résumé pool is viewable by all ICLE Member School leaders.
