Several times a year, the Institute hosts a “School Leaders Forum” at a flagship member school that has been steeped in Catholic liberal education for some time so that educators from around the country can see what the Church’s vision of education looks like in practice.
School Leaders Forum
November 14-16, 2019
St. Jerome Academy
Come visit the school that started it all! This fall, the Institute will host its next “School Leaders Forum” at St. Jerome Academy in Hyattsville, MD, home of The Educational Plan that has helped launch a number of other transitions around the country throughout the course of the last decade. The School Leaders Forum allows educators to see first hand what Catholic liberal arts education looks like at the elementary level. The forum will include a welcome and introductory talk on Thursday evening, followed by a full day of observation on Friday. Participants will take a tour of the school, have the opportunity to visit classes in session, and to talk with St. Jerome Academy 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 3:00 p.m.
Cost: $750 per person (includes school visit, seminars, workshops, and all lunches, dinners, and snacks during the course of the program). Space is limited. Participants are responsible for their own accommodations; a list of nearby hotels will be furnished upon registration.
