Reach prospects. Engage donors. Grow your school.

Learn how at our second annual Advancement Conference!

As educators, we work together to guide our students’ growth. What if we shared the same unity of purpose to guide the growth of our Catholic schools?

It is in this spirit that the Office of Catholic Education and Faith in the Future Foundation created the annual Advancement Conference: Advancing the Mission of Catholic Schools.

Designed as both a seminar and a meeting-place, the Advancement Conference gives educators an opportunity to network with one another while discovering effective means of ensuring prosperity for our Catholic schools.

Over the course of two enriching days, you’ll attend workshops in Advancement, Development, and Enrollment that will change the way you approach operations. Learn from fellow Catholic educators about what has worked for them… and share your insights with peers so that together, we can guide our schools’ growth.
