Catholic schools have the opportunity to be the centerpiece of education, formation and Catholic culture for a community.

In this interview, Dr. Richard Ludwick, president of University of St. Thomas-Houston, sits down with Kyle Pietrantonio, Executive Director of the Duc In Altum (DIA) Schools Collaborative. They discuss DIA and its value to Catholic educators, the DIA Summit they are attending, the impact of meaningful Catholic education, and how UST and DIA will work together in the future. They also discuss how Catholic schools are called to excellence and not mediocrity.

This interview took place at the Duc In Altum Summit in October 2023 at Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. Duc In Altum Schools Collaborative, an association of Catholic schools striving for a faith-centered culture, offers an annual summit for professional development for Catholic school and diocesan leaders.
