Welcome to CICI-Online

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

  • Partnership of NCEA, Catholic universities, religious congregations, corporations, and sponsors
  • Focused on integration of Catholic Identity into locally developed, rigorous, standards-based curriculum in PK-12 Catholic schools and dioceses
  • Working to develop and disseminate resources to support Catholic identity integrated rigorous curriculum
  • Working to train and empower peer reviewers who design and evaluate curriculum units
  • Website is primary vehicle for sharing CICI resources
  • Conferences and workshops extend training and collaboration

This web site exists to support Catholic Identity Curriculum Integration by sharing information, resources tools, and strategies that Catholic educators can use to develop Gospel values-based, rigorous standards-based curriculum for their dioceses and schools. Throughout the CICI-Online site two points of focus constantly interact: elements of Catholic identity and rigorous academic standards. The entire CICI initiative from its first moments to the present rests on the reality that Catholic schools use appropriate national and state standards as a foundation for going beyond those standards to educate the whole child. Catholic schools cherish each child by giving each child the knowledge, skills, and understanding needed to transform the world in the light of Gospel values.
