Partnering with the Retreat Institute

What We Offer


Through a highly collaborative process, the Retreat Institute partners  primarily with Cleveland congregations and supplementary and day schools.  The Retreat Institute offers:

  1. Educational consultation
  2. Planning and program design
  3. Funding
  4. Logistical assistance
  5. Professional development for educators

Collaborative Partnership & Planning

Our work is not “off-the shelf” programming. The Retreat Institute (RI) and the partner institution each assign a liaison, and together, they have primary planning and decision making responsibility. Working together, we develop experiences that:

• Integrate with curriculum and broader learning goals

• Fit the culture of the institution

• Offer professional development for educators so they are trained and prepared to facilitate experiences.
