Building Strong, Holistic Communities

Catholic schools are about more than academics. That’s why we support schools in building strong and holistic communities in classrooms, the hallways and in neighborhoods.

We focus our services and programs on a set of schools in which 70% or more of their families qualify for the Federal Free or Reduced Lunch Program.

What We Do

Catholic Schools Collaborative (CSC) is an architect of impactful partnerships that establish and support multi-school efforts fostering best practices, which can be piloted and replicated, in the areas of academics, operations, parent engagement and social emotional student supports at Catholic PK-8 Grade schools in lower income Los Angeles communities.

Our Approach

Our methodology is guided by four foundational pillars that we believe are necessary for Catholic schools to thrive: Academic Excellence, Operational Vitality, Social Emotional Supports, and Parent, Family, and Community Engagement. With a broad variety of partnerships and programs focused on each pillar, we provide personalized solutions for every urban Catholic PK-8 grade school interested in working with us.

"We are so very grateful for the CSC’s support and partnership. It truly has transformed this ministry and impacted the lives of USC students and those they tutor."

We believe that investors are ready for a new vehicle for their support of Catholic schools — a vehicle that provides funders with a unique way to leverage their support of Catholic schools in Los Angeles as well as the Archdiocese’s vision of growth for the schools, while closely monitoring the measurable impact of their investment.
