Catechetical Certification for Catholic Schools: The Christ in the Classroom Program (CIC) is our catechetical certification program for all Catholic schools. It is intended to serve all Catholic school administrators and teaching faculty within the Archdiocese of Seattle to affirm who we are in the context of faith and in relationship to the Catholic Church. The Christ in the Classroom Program integrates catechetical core content extracted directly from the PreK – 8 Religion Curriculum and Standards and the 9 – 12 Religion Standards developed by the Office for Catholic Schools, as well as instructs, informs, proclaims, and celebrates the clear purpose that the person of Jesus Christ is the central reason for each Catholic school.
