BUILDING A STRONGER CATHOLIC CULTURE FOR YOUR SCHOOL

Join hundreds of the nation’s top Catholic educators and school leaders virtually at the 6th annual Duc In Altum summit.

October 28-30

BUILDING AND PROMOTING A CATHOLIC CULTURE
IN TODAY'S ENVIRONMENT

As today's secular culture views our Catholic values with increasing hostility, it can be difficult to evangelize the next generation.

 

It becomes a greater battle when we believe we are alone when facing these common challenges.

  • How do we foster lasting joy in our teens amidst increasing anxiety levels?

  • What is the proper response to sweeping secularism in our students' homes?

  • How do we engage parents to participate in their children's catechesis?

  • How do we equip Catholic school educators to continue building community in an increasingly virtual world?

  • How does Catholic education evolve from the COVID crisis?

Rather than fighting alone, imagine what we can accomplish together.

At Duc In Altum, our goal is to unite Catholic school educators and administrators, empower them to build authentically Catholic cultures, and equip them to resist the tide of secular influences that threaten our commitment to form saints for God’s Kingdom.

WHY THE VIRTUAL DIA SCHOOLS SUMMIT?

"I think that the Lord delights in sending us friends for the journey, and that's what I found at my first Duc In Altum Collaborative Schools Summit."

For Sr. Anna Laura, O.P. of St. Cecilia Academy, the greatest gift she received at her first DIA Schools Summit was the amazing network of supportive friends sharing the mission of Catholic education.

    We invite you to join us for our 6th annual DIA Schools Summit,

    coming to you virtually for the first time!
