Introducing Catholic Liberal Education

Bishop Conley and Deacon Hecker have invited St Teresa’s School to be a Catholic Liberal Education (CLE) school. St Teresa’s is exploring the possibility of incorporating CLE into our curriculum.

CLE “Catholic liberal education” is simply a description of the full vision of human formation according to the mind of the Church. It is desirable and accessible to everyone who has a soul…It is liberal, in the classical sense of the term drawn from the Latin liber, which means free. Authentic Catholic education frees us to see the truth of things, and to order our lives and our loves to that truth. With a 2,500-year proven track record, this gold standard of education produced many of the keenest minds and the holiest of saints in history.
