The Partnership’s Immaculate Conception Grateful for 170 Years—and Counting

When News12 the Bronx wanted to report on some good news this winter, they knew just where to go: the Partnership’s Immaculate Conception School in the South Bronx. Their news team noted that the school—the oldest Catholic school in the Bronx—has served families for 170 years, and will continue to do so.

“Immaculate Conception attributes its longevity not only to the community’s support, but also to being part of the Partnership Network of seven schools independently managed,” their report explains.

News12 also noted that the Archdiocese of New York is closing 12 other Catholic schools this year.

When asked how she felt about Immaculate Conception’s continued record of service to the Melrose-Mott Haven communities, Principal Alex Benjamin responded, “grateful.”
