Dear Collaborators in Catholic Education,

Christmas greetings to you all!

I hope that this note finds you rested and renewed as we pivot towards the second half of the academic year. Looking back on the fall term, we had such a rich experience at the 8th annual DIA Summit hosted by JSerra Catholic High School in San Juan Capistrano, California.  Planning has already commenced for the Summit next October 16 – 18 in Washington, DC on the campus of The Catholic University of America. Please mark your calendars!

This month, the DIA Fellowship begins with an amazing cohort of educators from across the country. Hearing their hopes for their schools as they begin work in the Fellowship has been awe-inspiring. We will look forward to hearing their presentations as a capstone to their Fellowship at October’s Summit, where we pray it will inspire ideas and action in more places.

Finally, please mark your calendar for Tuesday, February 14th at 1pm ET when we will host Shawn Peterson, President of Catholic Education Partners. Shawn will join us virtually for a conversation about the changing school choice landscape in our country and what this means for Catholic education now and in the coming years. 

Duc In Altum!
