Welcome to Next Level Catholic Academy, an online teaching community designed to turn ordinary Catholics into spiritual dynamos.

More than education, it's transformation!

Come see for yourself!

The Science of Sainthood

The premiere "course" in Next Level Catholic Academy, the "Science of Sainthood" is a systematic unpacking of the mystical wisdom of spiritual giants like Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross, Thomas Aquinas, Augustine, and many others.

Famous around the world for his down-to-earth style and crystal clear teaching, Matthew Leonard will guide you step-by-step down the actual path to sainthood.

This is everything you should have learned, but never did...until now. Prepare to be led into the beauty and mystery of God himself and have your your soul set on fire!



We're In This Together!

As a member of the Science of Sainthood, you'll have the ability to discuss, ask questions, and grow with a community of dedicated Catholics who want to grow spiritually as much as you. 

The Church is a family. We need to support each other. That's what Community is all about.

Authentic Catholic Formation At Your Fingertips

We know you're busy. That's why Next Level Catholic Academy is available online whenever it works for your schedule.

You can even download the audio and full transcripts for occasions when no internet is available.

"After 40 years in the priesthood, I finally understand concepts like the 'Purgative, Illuminative and Unitive ways' and abandonment to the will of God. I heard Matthew Leonard explain them in a way that even I can understand. He is possibly the finest speaker on the spiritual life out there."

Fr. Rich Simon
Host of "Father Simon Says" on Relevant Radio
