Schools Summit

Join us in Nashville, Tennessee, on the beautiful campus of St. Cecilia Academy, October 20-22, for the 7th Annual DIA Schools Summit!

Endorsed by Bishops and Superintendents, and highly rated by past attendees, the annual DIA Schools Summit brings together thought-leaders in Catholic education.

The agenda includes general sessions and workshop tracks for school and diocese leadership, campus ministers and teachers forging new paths

to encourage faith and holiness on their respective campuses.

The Summit is hosted on campuses of DIA member schools providing opportunities to experience best practices in-action. The event provides a retreat-like atmosphere while providing top-notch professional development.

The Duc In Altum Schools Summit is an inspiring and energizing gathering of witnesses to Christ who serve Him in Catholic schools. The event provides a much-needed opportunity to share and encourage each other in this critically important work of the Church. I would recommend it to any Catholic educator who seeks an opportunity to grow in faith and in hope!

  • This conference provides both clarity of our mission as Catholic schools and educators, and the resources and practices to fulfill that mission.

  • If you are interested in building and fostering Catholic culture at your school, you should come.

  • It is great to see such wonderful inspiration and be able to learn new ways to implement a Catholic mission in our own school.

  • It is SO refreshing to be a part of professional development that is deeply faithful to prayer and to authentic Catholic Identity in schools who are concerned with the Catholic faith being well integrated in everything we do.
