Schools Summit

Join us in Washington, DC, October 16-18, 2023, for the 9th Annual DIA Schools Summit! The 2023 Agenda is our strongest ever!

The event provides a retreat-like atmosphere while providing top-notch professional development for school and diocese leaders, teachers and campus ministers. Endorsed by Bishops and Superintendents, and highly rated by past attendees, the annual DIA Schools Summit brings together thought-leaders in Catholic education.

Consider adding an exclusive tour of The Museum of the Bible with after-hours admission, dinner, and programming customized for Catholic education professionals on Tuesday evening, October 17. Register Now for The Night At the Museum, just $25 per person.

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!
