Mission StatementMORE »

The Campaign for Catholic Schools is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in December 2007 and charged with raising the private philanthropic funds needed to implement the recommendations made by the 2010 Initiative for Catholic Education (2005-07).  The 2010 Initiative was commissioned by Boston's Archbishop, Cardinal Sean O'Malley, to turnaround the downward trends experienced by inner city Catholic schools.  

That effort resulted in a strategic plan that envisioned a new, progressive model of Catholic education for the Archdiocese of Boston’s inner city schools that includes: the consolidation/regionalization of schools where necessary; new governance in the form of school boards; improved, performance-based compensation for teachers, plus regular professional development; enhanced academic and faith formation curricula; technology introduced at all grade levels; and renovations of school buildings where needed to bring them into a state-of-the-art learning environment.

Overview

Mission Statement

The Campaign for Catholic Schools is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in December 2007 and charged with raising the private philanthropic funds needed to implement the recommendations made by the 2010 Initiative for Catholic Education (2005-07).  The 2010 Initiative was commissioned by Boston's Archbishop, Cardinal Sean O'Malley, to turnaround the downward trends experienced by inner city Catholic schools.

Background Statement

The Campaign for Catholic Schools is implementing the systemic changes required to ensure that the effective, low-cost urban Catholic education model is preserved, strengthened, and replicated. Catholic schools are the 2nd largest educational system in the US, educating 1.9 million annually, welcoming students of all faiths. Catholic school students test higher than their public school peers in most subject areas, have a 97% graduation rate, and 96% of graduates matriculate to college (92% of these will attend a 4-year college). Catholic schools generate $24 billion in annual tax savings for our nation.

In its 8-year history, CCS has reorganized Catholic elementary schools in the communities of Dorchester/Mattapan, Brockton, and South Boston into 3 modern regional academies serving 2,000 students:

• St. John Paul II Catholic Academy (SJPIICA): With 1,252 students ages 2.9-Grade 8, SJPIICA is the largest elementary school in Boston—public or private—educating 30% of all Catholic elementary students in Boston on 4 campuses in Dorchester/Mattapan. Recent highlights include the reopening in December 2015 of the Lower Mills Campus after a $10 million renovation made possible through private philanthropy – the third of its four campuses to be renovated.

• Trinity Catholic Academy (TCA): TCA was the first project undertaken by CCS. The Academy was created in 2007 from the merger of three Brockton Catholic elementary schools. TCA educates students PreK-Grade 3 on its Lower Campus and Grades 4-8 on its Upper Campus. Today, TCA is the only Catholic elementary school in Brockton and serves 426 students.

• South Boston Catholic Academy (SBCA): SBCA was formed in 2009 from the consolidation of two parish schools in South Boston onto one campus. Today, SBCA serves more than 350 children in PreK-Grade 6, with its early childhood program doubling from SY15 to SY16 from 4 to 8 classrooms.

New programs have been implemented, with major emphasis on improving student literacy, as well as vibrant academics, enrichment programs, and new technology. Performance-based improvements to teacher compensation are being phased-in, and teachers are required to participate in 30 hours of professional development annually.

In addition, CCS is currently assisting with a school project in Lowell, Massachusetts, raising funds to help create the only PreK-Grade 12 Archdiocesan Catholic school north of Boston, serving 700 children in Greater Lowell.

Impact Statement

With $79.6 million raised through private philanthropy, the Campaign for Catholic Schools shares the following accomplishments: (1) Established 2nd largest elementary school in the Archdiocese of Boston, Trinity Catholic Academy (TCA), on two campuses in Brockton, MA (Grades PreK-8) in 2007. Raised over $10 million raised toward capital renovations, programs, and operational start-up support. (2) Established largest elementary school in Boston, private or public, St. John Paul II Catholic Academy, (1,252 students, Grades PreK-8) in 2008 on four campuses in Dorchester and Mattapan from consolidation of 7 former parish schools. Over $60 million raised to date in gifts and pledges toward (a) the full renovation and addition of new wings at three campuses – Columbia Campus (2008) and Neponset Campus (2009, 2011), and Lower Mills (2015) all in Dorchester and (b) for new programs, technology and operational start-up. (3) Complete renovation in 2008/09 of the Catholic Charities St. Peter Teen Center, Dorchester. (4) Helped establish South Boston Catholic Academy in 2009, raised funds for minor capital improvements and new academic programs.

Goals for FY17 include: (1) Raise programmatic, operational and academic funds for SJPIICA and TCA; (2) Raise funds for new increased teacher compensation initiative; (3) Expand major gifts program; (4) Develop new sources of foundation funding; and (5) Integrate planned giving conversations into all donor meetings.


Needs Statement

The Campaign for Catholic Schools’ five most pressing needs are: (1) Growing student enrollment at St. John Paul II Catholic Academy toward 1,600 student capacity and at Trinity Catholic Academy toward 550 student capacity; (2) Improve teacher compensation to ultimately that of about 70% of the average teacher salary in the Boston Public Schools (for SJPIICA) and to 70% that of the average teacher salary in Brockton Public Schools (for TCA); (3) Continue to improve student literacy and overall academic achievement through new literacy-focused curricula, increased instructional time, data-driven instruction, one-on-one tutoring, and measuring progress using regular formative assessments and achievement testing; (4) Identify/develop non-tuition sources of revenue for urban Catholic elementary schools for long-term financial sustainability; (5) Create/publicize more opportunities for volunteering in urban Catholic elementary schools.

Programs

Saint John Paul II Catholic Academy (SJPIICA), Dorchester /Mattapan, MA

The Campaign for Catholic Schools (CCS) raises the funds needed to solidify Saint John Paul II Catholic Academy (SJPIICA), Boston’s largest elementary school, opened in 2008. It serves 1,252 students (Grades PreK-8) on 4 campuses in Dorchester and Mattapan. Nearly half of the students receive financial aid and federally funded free or reduced meals, with many coming from families of new immigrants who have low income. Funds raised are used for: improving performance-based teacher compensation to closer to that of urban public schools; enhancing academics, with special emphasis on improving student literacy; upgrading technology at all grade levels; and renovating school facilities. Dorchester is home to the largest population of children under age 18 in Massachusetts and together with neighboring Mattapan and Roxbury, it is also home to the largest concentration of child poverty in the state (42%) according to a 2011 Special Indicators Report published by the The Boston Foundation.

Budget  $1,200,000.00
Category  Education, General/Other Education, General/Other
Population Served K-12 (5-19 years) Infants to Preschool (under age 5)
Program Short-Term Success 
Our students will be performing at the 60th percentile in Stanford-10 Achievement Tests within two to three years
 
 
Program Long-Term Success 
Our success is measured by:
*Closing the achievement gap for our students, especially those coming from homes where a language other than English is spoken (about 40% of our students)
*Improving student literacy in reading and writing English and in math
*Moving our students above the national average (50th percentile) in nationally standardized achievement testing
*Ensuring that our students graduate on time and are accepted into the best high schools (and ultimately colleges)

Examples of Program Success 
2012 SAT-10 Summary Highlights:
·On 76% of the subtests, PJPIICA students scored higher relative to the nation in 2012 as compared to 2010
·Mattapan Square Campus had the 2nd highest growth scores in the Archdiocese (1st place in Grades 4 and 8)
·Columbia Campus’ growth was among the top ten in the Archdiocese
·Grade 7 scores showed deficiency as evidenced by a slight drop in scaled scores. [In part, this reflects that 30% of higher achieving students leave PJPIICA after Grade 6 to attend the highly competitive (free) Boston Exam Schools. It is good they are testing high enough to be accepted into the exam schools; but unfortunately it means we are losing them from the Academy.]

SJPIICA Lower Mills Campus Renovation, Dorchester, MA

The Lower Mills Campus of Saint John Paul II Catholic Academy, located in Dorchester in a circa 1915 school building, is the 3rd of the 4 school campuses scheduled to undergo full renovation as funds are raised to do so. The resulting changes will include: new infrastructure, renovated classrooms, updated science labs, special classrooms dedicated to media, art and music, a new cafeteria, and an elevator for handicapped accessibility (required by city building code). Leading members of Boston's financial sector have led the way in raising $5.9 million in gifts and pledges toward $7.8 million goal to fund renovations. About 1/4 of SJPIICA's students attend the Lower Mills Campus, with 86% being African American or Haitian, 8.6% Hispanic, 4.6% Asian, and<1% Other.

 

 

Budget  $8,200,000.00
Category  Education, General/Other Literacy
Population Served K-12 (5-19 years) Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent Immigrant, Newcomers, Refugees
Program Short-Term Success 
Students' learning will benefit from improved school facilities.
The daily flow of education will be improved by enhanced facilities (e.g., a new cafeteria, updated library and computer labs)
Teachers' job satisfaction will be improved by better school facilities.
Program Long-Term Success 

Our ultimate goal is the preservation & strengthening of high quality, values-based Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Boston. Since school facilities affect learning, part of getting there is providing a 21st century learning environment. Research shows the attitudes, behavior, & relationships among students & staff are more conducive to learning in schools that have had significant capital investments. Better school buildings contribute to higher student scores on standardized tests. Research also shows: Spatial configuration, noise, heat, cold, light, & air quality bear on students' & teachers' performance; Appropriate lighting helps improve test scores, reduce off-task behavior, & plays a significant role in students’ achievement. Students with the most classroom daylight progressed faster than students who learned in environments receiving the least amount of natural light; Good school leadership & teaching take place in schools with a good physical environment.

About 26-30% of students test high enough to be accepted into one of Boston's three, highly competitive exam schools beginning in Grade 7.

Trinity Catholic Academy, Brockton, MA

Trinity Catholic Academy (TCA) is a two-campus elementary school that opened in 2007 in Brockton, MA. Formed from the consolidation of three former parish schools with rapidly declining enrollments totaling under 400 students, TCA is now the 2nd largest elementary school in the Archdiocese of Boston, serving 546 students (Grades PreK-8). The curriculum includes 90 minutes of every school day focused on improving the reading and writing of English and on math. TCA offers further challenges for high-performing students through its Talented and Gifted Program, as well as offering many academic enrichment opportunities for all students (i.e., music and sports). Its extended day program offers additional programming (i.e., Math Club) to further improve student learning.
Budget  $400,000

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

Capital and operational improvements to the Catholic elementary schools in Brockton and Dorchester have been temporarily financed by borrowing from the Archdiocese of Boston. The Campaign for Catholic Schools' current and ongoing plans include the collection of current pledges and continued development activities.  The FY2015 Financial Statements reflect the capital expenditures of previous donations collected for renovations of the Lower Mills campus of St. John Paul II Catholic Academy, which was completed in December 2015.  Additionally, the FY2015 revenue of $1.8 million was substantially lower than previous years because multi-year major gift pledges were being paid off.  This was a temporary decrease, and FY2016 revenue ($3.2 million) is up 77% from FY2015 and FY17 goal of $4.3 million is expected to be achieved.

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?
