School Leaders Forum
Dates and locations for 2021 TBA
Every year, the Institute schedules several School Leaders Forums at flagship member schools so that visitors can see Catholic liberal arts education in practice. Typically, the program begins at 7 p.m. on a Thursday, followed by a one-day visit to the flagship school on Friday. Participants 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 have the opportunity to meet and talk with school leaders and faculty members at dinner. Saturday features 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 concludes 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). Space is limited. Participants are responsible for their own accommodations; a list of nearby hotels will be furnished upon registration.
SCHOOL LEADERS: Be aware that many schools are able to fund program participation via Federal Title funding. Importantly, see here for a recent policy letter from Secretary DeVos indicating that such funding for secular services from religious organizations does not violate the Establishment clause. If you have questions regarding Title funding, please feel free to contact us for guidance.
