Mission

The Campaign for Catholic Schools is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in December 2007 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 for 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.

Saint John Paul II Catholic Academy (SJPIICA) Dorchester, 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 more than 1,000 students (Grades PreK-8) on 3campuses in Dorchester . 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.

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.
