Hoven, Matt; Egli, Trevor – Journal of Catholic Education, 2019
In practice, sports often play a major role in shaping the identity of Catholic schools. Theorists consider how to better integrate religious faith into sports programs.

Boeve, Lieven – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2019
Rather than choosing between either catholic identity, or openness to otherness, the catholic dialogue school envisages, through the dialogue with the other, to stir the (re)discovery of one's own identity, and to introduce once again the Christian voice within the conversation. After introducing this project, I reflect more extensively on how to…

Striepe, Michelle; Clarke, Simon; O'Donoghue, Thomas – Issues in Educational Research, 2014
Studies which examine how educational leadership in faith-based schools is understood and practised are few and far between in the research literature.

At the heart of all curriculum decision-making is the learner.
