“The children we serve may come from different parts of the world than our families did, but their parents want for them what ours did for us: a good education, a safe place to live, and a wonderful future.” -Jack Connors, Jr., CCS ChairHelp rebuild Catholic education

The Campaign for Catholic Schools (CCS) is blazing a trail for a new model of education that truly educates the whole child. Our schools blend the time-tested traditions that have made Catholic schools great with a vision for the future.
Research shows that Catholic education is an effective educator of children, with a high return on investment. For children in urban communities, it has proven to be the best educational model and one of the best-kept untold success stories. No other educational system comes close to having the same kind of positive impact or results. Studies show that Catholic school students are scoring higher on the SAT’s, graduating high school, and attending college more-so than their public-school counterparts.
Our new model focuses on system-wide change in the following areas: lay governance, enhanced academics, improved faculty support, and renovated buildings.
