About The Partnership
The Partnership is a pioneering school management organization that is shaping the next generation of urban Catholic education. Granted operational management in 2013 of six long-standing Pre-K to 8th grade schools in the South Bronx and Harlem, the Partnership is committed to providing students in historically underserved neighborhoods with the academic preparation, values, and skills they need to excel.
The historic success of urban Catholic schools stems not only from a rigorous tradition of academic excellence, but also from an emphasis on developing self-worth, moral character, a love of learning, and a sense of civic responsibility—all part of our long-standing commitment to educating the whole child. The Partnership is unique in knitting this tradition together with lessons from high-achieving public, charter, and independent schools, in the service of our students.
For more than twenty years, the Partnership has raised and invested over $200 million in urban Catholic schools. Today, as a School Management Organization (SMO), the Partnership is intensifying its efforts to break the cycle of poverty and close the achievement gap across our network schools.
At the Partnership, we believe all children can achieve at the highest levels.
The Partnership is accepting applications for elementary and middle school teachers for the 2015-2016 school year. We are looking for educators who share an unwavering commitment to raising student achievement and an appreciation and a respect for Catholic culture, identity, and values.

At the Partnership we support teachers through weekly school-based professional development, network-wide PD meetings, coaching and feedback sessions from school leadership, the Partnership Superintendent/ CAO and, and nationally recognized partner organizations —Teach like a Champion, Amplify, Core Knowledge, etc.

"Whenever I talk to my teacher friends, the first thing I tell them is that you have to check out the Partnership! I thought I would have to wait five to six years into my career as an educator, but because I am working hard and achieving, I have had many exciting opportunities here."

"We don’t separate what happens in the academic realm with what happens in the personal realm. What students learn in the classroom is very much connected to our students’ personal lives and the people they become."
