Schools Summit

Join us in San Juan Capistrano, California, on the beautiful campus of JSerra Catholic High School, October 19-21, 2022, for the 8th Annual DIA Schools Summit!

Endorsed by Bishops and Superintendents, and highly rated by past attendees, the annual DIA Schools Summit brings together thought-leaders in Catholic education.

The 2021 agenda included general sessions and workshop tracks for school and diocese leadership, campus ministers and teachers forging new paths

to encourage faith and holiness on their respective campuses. Expect such quality programming in 2022!

The Summit is hosted on campuses of DIA member schools providing opportunities to experience best practices in-action. The event provides a retreat-like atmosphere while providing top-notch professional development.

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!
