Growing Our Future. Deeply Rooted in a Legacy of Faith and Education.
Strengthening and sustaining schools
Integrating technology into the classroom is imperative for 21st century learning. Teachers and students in Catholic Partnership Schools enjoy the benefits of SMART boards, classroom workstations, and fully equipped computer labs.
Our ministry to children includes empowering their families to value education’s significance. Our Family Support Programs allow us to provide necessary tools and resources to families that will reinforce classroom learning and help families identify and remedy barriers to children’s success.
Excellent Catholic schools provide an environment that nourishes the spirits and souls of children to sustain them for a lifetime. Our graduates are moving on to excellent high schools and later on, outstanding universities and professional trades.
Our responsibility is to provide an excellent education that gives children the skills they need for success in rigorous high schools so they have a choice of a college, profession, or trade. Measuring our success is important. It allows us to build on our strengths and to strengthen opportunities for growth.
Education is a transformative power that can positively change children’s lives and give them hope and a future of possibility. CPS co-curricular activities are designed to present new opportunities to students while enhancing their school-day learning.
Catholic Partnership Schools believes that it is our obligation to insure mastery of core, foundational skills in reading and math. Our new literacy programs include the Children’s Literacy Initiative and First in Math.
Art becomes a unifying theme for Catholic Partnership Schools. In so many ways, the arts, whether visual, musical, or performing, can change everything. Art is a gift, an original gift that changes the one who receives and the one who creates.
