“The Partners in Excellence program has effected thousands of school children in Baltimore and their families. Our ability to grow Partners In Excellence and other programs like Partners In Excellence will have a profound effect on the future of Baltimore. Because every singular kid who has an opportunity to lift themselves up, changes our city.” 

“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.” 

“The Partners In Excellence program is something that we’re very proud of investing in for lots of reasons. But mostly because of the strong outcomes and knowing that we’re doing it in collaboration with lots of other people, lots of other entities.” 

“The mission of the Partners in Excellence program is to give and opportunity to students here in our city that otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to attend our Catholic schools.”
