About the Summit

In 2019 the Duc in Altum (DIA) Schools Collaborative hosted the 5th Annual DIA Schools Summit at Providence Academy in Plymouth, Minnesota. This is one of the most exciting new ventures to take place in the arena of Catholic school management and the formation of educators.

The DIA Schools Collaborative is dedicated to promoting sound Catholic identity and commitment to a robust catechetical approach that meets young people where they are, and then sends them out with the tools necessary to tackle a challenging contemporary culture. For the past five years, the DIA Schools Summit has convened administrators, theology instructors and campus ministers to exchange exciting ideas and best practices for fostering a dynamic environment of evangelization that fosters authentic friendship with Jesus and a love for His Church in Catholic education institutions.

I wholeheartedly endorse this fresh endeavor within the Church for the cultivation of academic and spiritual excellence, combined with Magisterial fidelity. I hope to see this initiative expand and grow so that many more young people in our Catholic schools can reap the benefits of this effort to renew our Catholic Schools.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

The Most Reverend Andrew H Cozzens, STD, DD
Auxiliary Bishop of Saint Paul and Minneapolis

OCTOBER 28-30, 2020
Catholic School Administrators, Teachers, and Campus Ministers from High Schools throughout the country are welcome to participate in this professional development experience. The purpose of the summit is to create a national network of collaboration and idea-sharing to further the fruitful formation of students as authentic disciples of Jesus Christ.
