DIA on the Move

It has been an exciting year for founding members of DIA Schools Collaborative. We’re energized by the supportive network and opportunities to collaborate with Catholic schools of a wide range of sizes and leadership structures. Thriving through the pandemic, this community of intentionally faith-focussed schools and their leaders shared resources and built relationships for the betterment of one another, and for the future of our Church through virtual meetings. But like you, we are ready and excited to meet in person.


In June, these members were in Boston for Partners in Mission’s National Advancement Summer Institute for Catholic Schools: Kyle Pietrantonio, DIA Executive Director and Partner, Partners in Mission; Sister M Bridget Martin, Principal at The High School of St. Thomas More in Champaign, IL; and Angela Odinet, Headmistress at John Paul the Great Academy in Lafayette, LA.

Will we see you in the California wine country for the Napa Summer Institute July 21-25? There’s still time to register and take advantage of deeply discounted registration through DIA membership. New this year: a reserved track of breakout sessions for DIA Schools and affiliates, with presentations by Father Roger Landry and Father Dave Pivonka. View the loaded conference agenda here.

DIA’s 7th Annual Schools Summit takes place in Nashville October 20-22 with one of the strongest lineups of speakers and content we’ve ever seen. The event is held on the campus of St. Cecilia Academy so attendees experience faith-infusion in action! Join us in person for professional development, collaboration, networking, and sharing resources with fellow Catholic school leaders, teachers and campus ministers. Register early as rates increase September 1.
