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! Register now.

The 2022 agenda includes 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.

The event provides a retreat-like atmosphere while providing top-notch professional development. 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!
