Results matter.

In under-served Cleveland and New York neighborhoods, Partnership Schools form students with the knowledge, character, and habits they need to flourish in high school, college, and beyond.

In our first decade, the impact of our work is clear.

Ensuring that all families have access to Catholic schools, regardless of their income, is at the core of what Partnership Schools does. More than ever we see that when families have an excellent faith based school in their community they that they can afford, they come.

Our schools lay the foundation on which our students build bright futures. In 2023, for example, 88% of Partnership New York graduates were accepted at top-tier Catholic, independent, specialized public, and high-quality charter high schools. 

I’m first-generation, and it’s a big deal for me to be going off to college.

In New York, a growing number of Partnership students are mastering high school Algebra 1 — before they start high school.

The longer students are with us the better they do.

In their first years in the Partnership, our four schools are outperforming neighborhood schools, laying the foundation for future growth, and demonstrating what we see in New York also.

Partnership Schools—indeed, all Catholic schools—educate the whole child: we form students’ values and habits, cultivate a sense of awe at God’s loving presence, and awaken young people to the meaning our lives gain only in service to others.

Catholic schools have a unique power to impact character because they cultivate a strong sense of community that helps students become their best selves in a supportive environment. For more on how our Partnership Schools do that, click here.

I will leave Archbishop Lyke School knowing I attended a great Catholic school that helped me and taught me to be a better person. For that, I am very thankful.

Artists speak of “art through adversity.” The idea is that great art is born not from excess, but from constraint. The necessity of keeping costs down to sustain our schools well into the future has required us to innovate and focus on the effective practices that help schools go from good to great.

I don’t need any more evidence that Partnership Schools are doing a good job, but if I did, all I have to do is look around today.
