Inspiring and promoting the renewal and transformation of our nation's Catholic schools

Our Mission

The Institute for the Transformation of Catholic Education (ITCE) at The Catholic University of America advances the distinctive excellence of Catholic education as a gift for each person and for society. We foster a vision of education and formation that is rooted in Christ, draws from the great treasury of the Church’s tradition, and aims at the full flourishing of the human person in wisdom, virtue, and holiness. We inspire and promote the spiritual, intellectual, cultural, and operational renewal and transformation of our nation’s PK-12 Catholic schools through teacher and leader degree and professional development programs, school accreditation, and research.
