Growing Together: Best Practices for Catholic Schools 

Catholic Identity Curriculum Integration

Catholic Identity Curriculum Integration (CICI) was developed as a collaborative partnership formed to help teachers and school leaders develop curriculum that is truly Catholic and truly rigorous.

CICI has as one of its primary goals to develop and disseminate tools in the form of frameworks, guidelines and resources to assist teachers and school leaders as they develop curriculum to integrate elements of Catholic identity into rigorous standards.
