The Catholic School Advantage is a national movement committed to promoting the value and accessibility of a quality Catholic education among Church and school leaders, educators, and families. The work of the CSA is committed to embracing the universality of the Church by increasing Latino enrollment, educating culturally and linguistically diverse children through excellent academic formation, and empowering all Catholic school stakeholders through the celebration of faith, language, and culture.
Adelante is a new and exciting opportunity that builds on the success of the Latino Enrollment Institute (LEI), which for six years has been an exceptionally effective engine of Latino enrollment growth in Catholic schools around the country. While the LEI’s explicit focus on school-level change necessitates the commitment of school teams, Adelante offers an alternative, which is open to a variety of constituents. Notre Dame's Institute for Latino Studies is partnering with ACE to offer this three-day conference on campus, July 8-10, 2018.
