Superintendent PLC


There are few professional development opportunities for leaders at the diocesan level. To remedy this reality, the Roche Center in partnership with Fr. Ronald Nuzzi of Catapult Learning, launched a professional learning community (PLC) with 12 superintendents from across the United States during the winter of 2019-2020.

The year-long experience consists of two in-person retreats and monthly calls on a host of topics that address critical issues facing Catholic school superintendents. Throughout the time together, superintendents engage in collegial and challenging growth experiences, small group discussions, and problem-based learning activities.

The next PLC will begin in the winter of 2021-2022. We would love to have you join us!


I love sharing with this group, especially with this ongoing, adaptive challenge. It's not the same week to week, and this group has been my best source of information and support. We've been walking through this together in ways I find tremendously helpful.
