NCEA is the largest, private professional education association in the world. NCEA works with Catholic educators to support ongoing faith formation and the teaching mission of the Catholic Church. Our membership includes more than 150,000 educators serving 1.9 million students in Catholic education.
As a professional association whose focus is Catholic school education, NCEA’s focus is to lead, learn and proclaim by developing current and future leaders, providing educational resources and strategically expanding professional development opportunities for those committed to the mission of Catholic education and serving as the national voice for Catholic schools.
Annually, NCEA hosts the largest private-education association gathering in the nation. Those participating represent all aspects of Catholic school and faith-based education. The Convention is a time each year to celebrate, acquire new knowledge, and to renew your spirit. Beyond the annual Convention, NCEA produces multiple smaller and more focused professional development conferences throughout the year.
