Elisabeth Sullivan on the Relationship Between Classical and Liberal Education

In this episode, Elisabeth Sullivan, executive director of the Institute for Catholic Liberal Education (ICLE), joins hosts Shawn Peterson and Kimberly Begg to discuss the unique intersection of classical education and Catholic liberal education. She highlights the shortcomings of some Catholic school curriculums and the need for a holistic approach that integrates faith and rich content. ICLE’s mission is to restore this vision across Catholic schools through teacher training, curriculum resources, and leadership development, addressing concerns about secular teacher certification programs. The episode emphasizes the importance of integrating daily Mass, the rosary, and feast day celebrations in modern Catholic schools and explores the accessibility and revitalizing potential of Catholic liberal education for all students.
