Schools Summit

Join us in Houston, Texas, October 21-23, 2024, for the 10th Annual DIA Schools Summit!

The 2023 annual conference in Washington, DC, included more than 220 educators, administrators, campus ministers, partners and quality speakers. This provides momentum for another excellent Summit in 2024! Save the date for October 21-23. View the Agenda, which will be updated as speaker and topic details are confirmed.

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

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!
