For several years, the ongoing partnership between DIA Schools Collaborative and Napa Institute Foundation has provided support for DIA programming and services. The generous contributions and mentorship from Napa Institute encourages DIA to bring top notch speakers to our annual Schools Summit, guidance to tackle tough topics relevant to Catholic schools today and an outstanding event outline to emulate. They even offer DIA Members discounted registration for the annual summer conference.

The Napa Institute’s 12th Annual Summer Conference is scheduled July 27-31, 2022, and it’s been sold out for a few weeks. The theme is ​​“The Way, The Truth, and The Life.” The Summer Conference encourages attendees to “dive deeper into our Catholic Faith and examine, with a spirit of charity, intellectual rigor, and fidelity to the magisterium, pressing issues facing Catholics today. “

Duc In Altum Schools Collaborative is pleased to participate as a Platinum Sponsor this year! Are you attending the Summer Conference in person?
