Quality education is the foundation of success.
Every child deserves a quality education, and it is through education that we, as a society, will break the cycle of poverty for the families of our most marginalized and disadvantaged.
Since the Partners In Excellence Scholarship Program was established in 1996, the initiative has inspired long term participation from a variety of Partners. Several corporate, foundation and individual philanthropies have supported PIE for over a decade, including a handful since PIE’s inception. Because of the ongoing support of our donors, many families are also able to commit long-term to our schools. Check out this video to hear a little more about why PIE has inspired such a dedicated following.
How they’re able to engage families- it’s not just that you’re giving a student a scholarship, you’re giving a family a scholarship. And that family is part of an overall community.
I enjoy Catholic school because of the things they teach and the things the teachers do for us- they’re really sweet here and I like that. Everyone supports each other. The teachers, and the students. We just want to make everyone their best.
The willingness to help each other out here and to just be a family, is something I haven’t seen in a very, very long time. Despite their differences, they’re here to support, encourage, and love one another. They stick to that routine, they know what needs to be done. They have high expectations, not only for me, but for themselves.
The success of our students has remained consistent over 25 years. Strong attendance rates, excellent classroom performance and high graduation rates tell a story of students who recognize the opportunity given to them and are making the most of their opportunity.
