The Institute for the Transformation of Catholic Education (ITCE) at The Catholic University of America promotes PK-12 Catholic school renewal through the formation of teachers and leaders in the knowledge and love of the Catholic faith and the liberal arts tradition.

Mission and Vision

The ITCE aims to develop a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach to supporting the renewal of Catholic liberal arts education by:

  • Working in collaboration with the U.S. Bishops and other educational leaders to promote intellectual and spiritual renewal for Catholic schools across the United States;
  • Convening organizations and individuals engaged in the ministry of Catholic education and promoting best practices;
  • Leveraging the resources in the University and its schools to build first-class programs for Catholic school teachers and administrators;
  • Serving as a conduit for placing talented and committed teachers and administrators in our nation's Catholic schools.

Strategic Approach

In its earliest years, The Catholic University of America developed programs for the strengthening and unifying of Catholic education throughout the country. Through the Institute for the Transformation of Catholic Education, the University continues its commitment to advancing the dialogue between faith and reason, confident that Catholic schools provide a unique and irreplaceable service to the Church, the nation, and the world. 

The ITCE was launched in October 2021. We are currently engaged in convening leaders and supporters and developing initial and ongoing formation programs for present and aspiring Catholic school educators. Meet our new Director and Board of Advisors.
