Recognizing leadership of Catholic schools as a specialized ministry in the Church, the Institute for Catholic School Leadership provides holistic and integrated formation for those entrusted with the administration of Catholic schools.
This distinctive formation equips leaders to nurture a vibrant Catholic identity and community, cultivate spiritual and academic excellence in faculty and students, and apply executive management skills to grow and improve their schools.
As part of the broader seminary community, the Institute for Catholic School Leadership contributes to the formation of future priests and collaborates with the Institute for Ongoing Clergy Formation to enhance the critical relationship between pastors and principals as they strive for excellence in Catholic schools.
“I strongly encourage any principal seeking additional formation and education, and any school teacher aspiring to lead one of our Catholic schools, to attend the Institute for Catholic School Leadership.”
Most Reverend Bernard A. Hebda
Archbishop of Saint Paul and Minneapolis
