BCYC Immersion Education Track

A BCYC Immersion participants raise their hands in class

  • Session 1: June 16-21, 2024

The BCYC Immersion education program for high school students will examine the role of the professional teacher and professional preparation for teaching in the context of the liberal arts. A variety of issues and trends in the field of education will be discussed.

Professional preparation for the education of our children is the primary role of Benedictine College’s School of Education. Students in our undergraduate programs are prepared to assume the role of teacher in a wide range of environments from public and private institutions, home school cooperatives, classical academies, and as the first teacher of their own children.

“[…] education is the main instrument of culture and in the end the two words have similar roots --, man has to be educated in order to become more himself, to be realized, for man does not realize himself unless by means of an encounter with something else.”— Luigi Giussani
