Academic Retreat for Teachers
Benedictine College – Atchison, KS
The Academic Retreat for Teachers gives teachers, administrators, and board members a chance to re-kindle their passion for learning while exploring the foundations of Catholic education with colleagues from around the country.
The Retreat is not a workshop, though retreatants do benefit greatly from conversations about each other’s experiences. Rather it gives participants the opportunity to taste Truth as it is found throughout the typical Catholic liberal education curriculum – in Language, History, Mathematics, Science, Literature, Music, and Theology. Great authors such as Plato and St. Thomas, Newman, Dawson, Sayers, Shakespeare, Euclid, and Descartes will challenge and inspire. Small group discussions led by master teachers will foster encounters with the great traditions and with fellow participants.
The Academic Retreat is intended for those Catholic educators who want to ponder the depth and breadth of a curriculum alive with Catholic wisdom and experience the joy of a vibrant Catholic learning community.
