Our SIMPLE Approach

Whole School Strategy

At Catholic Schools Collaborative, we implement our very own Site-infused Model for Personalized Learning Environments, or SIMPLE, for short. This holistic, whole-school strategy is designed to meet and work with schools “where they are” in order to help them build and transform their cultures for long-term sustainability and vitality.

We hold fast to the belief that a successful, vibrant school community must excel equally in each of these foundational areas:

  • Academic Excellence
  • Operational Vitality
  • Social Emotional Student Supports
  • Parent, Family & Community Engagement

Operational Vitality

Thriving school communities are the product of superb academic leaders with the right expertise and resources. We help sustain success by facilitating strong financial management, instructional leadership, and an environment for staff to lead and grow.

Academic Excellence

High educational achievement is a hallmark of healthy Catholic schools. We ensure these standards are met by cultivating STEM innovation and empowering educators with the right resources in order to prepare their students for the 21st century.

Social Emotional Student Supports

Learning and growth depends on everyone having confidence that they can trust each other with openness, kindness, and respect. Our programs support schools and students with the skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, maintain healthy relationships, and achieve positive goals.

Parent, Family, & Community Engagement

Family engagement improves student achievement, increases attendance, and restores parents’ confidence in their children’s education. Through our programs we help build understanding relationships between parents and teachers to better facilitate student progress.
