It's All About the "One Thing" Necessary...

Next Level Catholic Academy is an online learning community designed to walk ordinary Catholics, step-by-step, down the path to literal sainthood.

It's all about deep intimacy with Christ, which the Lord himself calls the "one thing" necessary in Luke 10.

Far beyond the norm, it features dynamic, professionally produced video courses focused on authentic Catholic spirituality. More than education, it's transformation!

"Matthew Leonard teaches the rich spiritual tradition of the Church with clarity. If you want to reach the goal of union with God and help others to reach it, too, begin here."
Fr. Ryan Browning

What's Inside the Academy?

The Science of Sainthood

The premiere course in the Academy, the Science of Sainthood features the crystal clear teaching of Matthew Leonard.

It's more than 100 beautiful video lessons, accompanied by meditations, saint passages and Scripture, that powerfully and clearly unveil the mystical wisdom of spiritual giants like Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross, Thomas Aquinas, and more!

After all, the spiritual life is not a free-for-all. Catholic tradition throughout history teaches there is an actual science to sainthood.

This is everything you should have learned about the spiritual life, but never did...until now! Prepare to be transformed!

"I've never encountered anything like this before!"
"Beyond what I ever could have imagined!"

"Matthew Leonard is one of the greatest catechists I have ever encountered."

Fantastic Scripture Courses!

Featuring two-time winner of "Best Teacher" at Franciscan University of Steubenville, Dr. John Bergsma, Next Level Catholic Academy offers video courses titled Bible Basics for Catholics, as well as Introduction to the Psalms.

Dr. Bergsma is one of the best there is at explaining the depth and beauty of Scripture for regular Catholics.

(Did we mention his hilariously famous stick figure drawings?)

This is Scripture explained as never before.

"So enriching, precise and interesting!"

"Easy to understand..."

The Nature of Love

We're in the midst of rolling out a brand new course all about love!

In 1 Corinthians 13 St. Paul writes, "If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal....So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love."

The obvious question becomes "What exactly is love?".

One of the most venerable and beloved professors at Franciscan University, Dr. Michael Healy, is about to show you!

"I never dreamed I would be so fortunate to receive lessons like this..."
