Thanks to philanthropic support, the cost to schools for participation in the LEI is $1,200 per school. This fee covers accommodations, meals, and materials for two people, one of whom must be a school leader. Also included in this cost is the ongoing support of an LEI mentor via monthly Zoom calls, access to online monthly modules, and a mid-year follow-up gathering of principals in the cohort. A school may choose to bring a pastor at no additional cost.

Again, the cost of the LEI is $1,200 for schools wishing to stay on campus in university provided dormitories. For those wishing to stay off-campus in a nearby hotel, the cost is $1,600 (this also includes two people). Your preference may be selected on your application.

LEI Cost Summary_2022

Over 65% of our schools cover the cost for the LEI using Title funds, which we can help facilitate.
Please note that if you have a school in your diocese that attended the LEI in the past under a different principal, the new principal can come (without a guest) to the LEI for half the registration fee ($600). Contact Katy Lichon for more information (


Interested in attending the LEI but feel that the cost is prohibitive?
We appreciate your thoughtful consideration of the financial ask involved in the program. We truly believe that this is a strong investment in the long-term success of your school. The cost of the program has been graciously underwritten by donors and we have found that schools have been very successful in allocating Title II and Title III funding to cover the expenses. On average, 65% of schools cover the cost of the LEI using Title funds. We encourage you to think of the LEI as an investment, one in which the enrollment of an additional child in your school covers the cost of the program.

We do not want cost to be a barrier for any schools that are committed to this mission and want to attend the LEI. If you have any questions about the cost and/or how to secure Title funding to participate in the program, please contact Katy Lichon (
