The Partnership network’s goal is to develop a set of six academically high-performing, inner-city Catholic schools, thereby creating opportunity for all the students who attend them. To this end, the six Partnership network schools will, over time, offer the following:

  • Extended academic day – an extra 1.5 hours each Monday through Thursday devoted to ELA and Math instruction
  • Interim testing to gauge student progress
  • Professional staff development for principals and teachers that is well integrated into instructional practice
  • Effective use of technology in the classroom
  • Expanded academic programming
  • High school placement

The Partnership’s Chief Academic Officer will work directly with the six principals, providing individualized support, to help each principal develop as the instructional leader at their school.
