Background Statement

"What about the girls?" was Sister Rita Brereton's question as she toured Nativity Prep, an independent middle school for low-income boys from Boston's inner city neighborhoods.  Her tour guides, The Reverends Gerald Osterman and William Francis responded with their pledge to help her turn her question into a plan of action. In 1993, Mother Caroline Academy, a middle school for girls modeled after Nativity Prep became a reality and welcomed its first class of 30 girls in the 5th and 6th grade in two classrooms in a small convent on Bird Street in Roxbury, Massachusetts. The need for high quality educational opportunities however, went beyond the girls in underserved areas. Mother Caroline's founders realized that the parents and other family members of their Academy students also needed an educational pathway, one that would give them access to better jobs and improved financial security.  There was never any question about what needed to happen; Mother Caroline Academy would have to expand to accommodate these needs. A dedicated group of volunteers stepped up and undertook a successful capital campaign to purchase the old welfare building on Blue Hill Avenue in Dorchester, Massachusetts. The building was purchased for one dollar from the city of Boston , and was transformed from a symbol of dependence to a center of hope and opportunity.  Mother Caroline Academy and Education Center opened its doors on Blue Hill Avenue in 1998. Since 1993: 100% of MCA alumnae have graduated from high school 96% of MCA alumnae have attended or currently attending college Since 1993, 244 girls have attended MCA 80% of MCA graduates are paired with adult female mentors 40% of former Teaching Fellows stay in the field of education

Impact Statement

Accomplishments from the past year:  
 
  • In June 2012, the Academy added a new required summer program for rising 4th and 5th graders
  • In September 2012, the Academy added a 4th grade enrolling 30 students into two sections of 15 each
  • Reallocated resources of the Shining Star After School Program to implement an enhanced extended day program for 4th and 5th grade Academy students
  • Increased the number of professional educators on staff to ensure excellence in our academic and co-curricular programs and strengthen the residency teaching fellow program
  • Offered the Parenting Journey - an intensive twelve week program providing parents with the opportunity to share their strengths as parents, develop supportive relationships with other MCA parents, and develop other strategies needed to support your child’s development
Five Year Goals
  • Advance on our mission by increasing enrollment from a baseline of 60 to 135 students
  • Invest in faculty development, curriculum development, assessments, and co-curricular programming to drive higher academic performance and test scores
  • Maintain educator to student ratio below 10:1
  • Significantly reduce actual cost per student
  • Cap Academy operating budget increase from 2012 to 2017 to no more than 30% of 2012 budget


Needs Statement

The need and demand for an all girls’ tuition free school remains great within Roxbury, Dorchester, Mattapan, Hyde Park and Jamaica Plain. Last year we received 117 applications for 48 spots. All Academy girls come from families within the lowest income brackets. As a result, our mission and ample facility compels us to increase enrollment from a baseline of 60 (2011) to 135 by 2017.

While we will double the size of our student body while significantly reducing the actual cost per student, this growth will require capacity development.  In September 2012, we officially launched a $2 million Strategic Expansion Campaign.  Resources will be invested to ensure excellence in our academic and co-curricular programs, increase the number of professional educators on staff, and strengthen the residency teaching fellow program.  We need financial support from individuals and foundations to support increased enrollment.

We continue to need volunteers for academic support, i.e. tutoring, instruction across all subjects, for co-curricular program, i.e. athletics and music, and for marketing/PR.

CEO Statement

An adolescent girl from the neighborhoods we serve can be greatly at risk. If she stays in school, remains healthy, and gains real skills, she will likely earn an income that she"ll invest back into herself, her family and her community. But if she falls into the path laid down by poverty, she"ll leave school and likely become a mother at an early age. As a girl mother, an unskilled worker, and an uneducated citizen, she'll miss out on the opportunity to reach her full human potential. Situated in Grove Hall, Mother Caroline Academy (MCA) is arguably in Boston's epicenter of poverty where it is not uncommon to see girl mothers on the streets with children in tow. Statistics show that 85% of children from our neighborhoods live in poverty with single parents; predominantly females of color. Surrounding neighborhoods are distressed and marked by violence with girls facing risk and the demoralizing effects of omnipresent harassment. Our vision is to interrupt the cycle of poverty by providing a safe environment in which young-at-risk girls can access an excellent education and develop the self-esteem, self-confidence and ability to advocate and make healthy decisions for themselves without the distraction of adolescent boys. Believing that education has the power to transform lives, our mission is to provide our girls with the academic skills, knowledge and resiliency needed for high school, college and living a fulfilling and productive life. We have a proven track record of harnessing the potential of our students to lift individuals and families out of poverty, and to pay dividends to our society. We are accredited by the Association of Independent Schools of New England. MCA is Boston's only tuition-free private grade 4-8 school for girls with an extended day program that operates Monday - Friday from 8:00-5:00 with evening study for grades 5-8 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:00-6:30 and breakfast available from 7:30-8:00. The Academy provides students and their families with the guidance and support needed to transition into secondary school and beyond. The Graduate Support Team assists students and their families throughout every aspect of the high school application process. As an extension of Graduate Support, MCA offers the Mentoring Program - designed to provide support to current students as well as high school alumnae as they transition away from the Academy, adapt to high school culture and rigor, and undertake the college selection and application process. The commitment by both the mentor and student is from 7th grade through 12th grade.

Board Chair Statement

There is an exciting energy at Mother Caroline Academy as we embark on a new growth plan to serve more young girls and their families. The addition of a 4th grade gives us an opportunity to close the education gap further and prepare the girls for challenging private schools. Our results stack up against the best charter schools in the country. In fact, some of them are adopting our best ideas, like our extended day program for the Academy running from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and our Adult Education program designed to support the success of the entire family. Our results demonstrate our success with 100% of Academy girls graduating from high school and 96% attending college. We will continue to lead the charge in urban education through innovations.

Mentoring

MCA Mentoring Program is designed to provide support to current students as well as high school alumnae as they transition away from the Academy, adapt to private high school culture and rigor, and undertake the college selection and application process. The commitment by both the mentor and student is from 7th grade through 12th grade. Specific program objectives include: To develop supportive relationships between students and positive adult female role models To foster academic success and a successful transition into higher education institutions To assist in addressing the barriers experienced by parents who may have limited English language skills, demanding work and family needs, and limited exposure to higher education institutions.
Budget  $85,000.00

Program Short-Term Success  A significantly expanded mentoring program pairing current MCA girls and alumnae with female adult mentors with 62 active pairs Designed and implemented enhanced programs and workshops for mentors and mentees (both together and separate). First cohort of MCA students paired with a mentor graduate from high school June 2012. Girl Power: Dream, Believe, Achieve. Event 3/4/12 - First Annual Girl Power was a huge success. With a full house of over 150 participants including current students, MCA alumnae, mentors, civic leaders, elected officials, teachers, and staff. Mother Caroline Academy Mentoring Program has been named the newest Partner Member of the Mass Mentoring Partnership.
Program Long-Term Success  Mentees learn many skills and competencies including taking initiative, problem solving, analysis, healthy decision-making, effective communication, relationships, self-advocacy, networking, and presentations. In the inaugural year of the program, we assigned two grades at one time. The out going 8th graders and the incoming 8th graders. The sustained match percentage in the outgoing 8th grade class, the class of 2008, is 40%. Whereas in following years we saw a steady increase in sustainability from 60% in the class of 2009 to 85% in the class of 2012. This year we have 27 students between the entering 7th and 8th grade classes. The program was presented to these students and their families.21 of the 27 students and their families have chosen to participate. We have seen an increase in the number of students who were initially resistant to mentoring, return to our program later in their high school years after observing the positive experiences of their peers.
Program Success Monitored By  Financial commitments to cover components of this grant from individuals, corporations, foundations and other organizations Survey tool to assess students performance in internship settings and as well as the host corporation's desire and ability to continue the internship relationship Assessment methodology for determining the effectiveness of trainings with reports used to refine and inform future trainings and programs Expansion of resource area of mentoring section of website - effectiveness measured through an on-line survey completed by mentors and mentees Increased visibility and interest among adult females to serve as mentors resulting in a waiting list of mentors Development of a resource guide with suggestions for topics ranging from what to do around Boston to a range of summer program opportunities Reports on long term matriculation and job placement of program participants Evaluation of the program by mentors and passed mentees
Examples of Program Success  I'll be the first to admit when introduced to the mentoring program I had my doubts. This all changed that fateful day at the Patriots game in October of 2009.This was the first time I had been introduced to my mentor, Kim. I don't know why, but as soon as I met her I instantly liked her, maybe it was the kindness that radiated off her.As I got to know Kim my skepticism completely left my mind.With Kim I not only have a mentor, but I have a friend and so much more.She is someone who really encourages me to do my best, but also knows how to relax and act silly.I always look forward to going out with Kim because of her kind compassionate heart and playful nature, whether we're with her adorable children or alone we're always sure to have a great time.I'm really thankful to the mentoring program because without it I would not have met Kim and had a chance to be a part or her wonderful family.Christelle

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
