    ACE Advocates Update from Fr. Lou DelFra, CSC

    As many of you know, Sarah and her husband Chris just welcomed a new member of their family, John Peter Perkins, who was born on June 19th. The whole Perkins family is doing very well! Sarah’s role at ACE will be transitioning to part time, and we wanted to take this opportunity to thank Sarah for her countless contributions to the ACE Movement.

    Love for Catholic schools

    "We don’t speak much about love in education, not even during Catholic Schools Week. Instead, we focus on more tangible measures of success: how 99 percent of Catholic school students get their high-school diplomas; how a black or Latino child is 2.5 times more likely to graduate from college if he or she has attended a Catholic high school; how Catholic schools manage to do all this at a fraction of the cost of public schools."

    Catholic Schools Week 2014 - For Our Teachers

    As we conclude Catholic Schools Week, we give thanks to God for God's abundant graces, revealed to us in our students, teachers, parents, and administrators. May we always view our work on behalf of Catholic schools as a ministry, a service, a blessing, a gift. 

ACE Collaborative for Academic Excellence

Teachers together 2To strengthen curriculum and instruction in Catholic schools, ACE has designed group projects and workshops for diocesan-selected master teachers and principals. The Collaborative is currently in five dioceses, with more than 300 people participating.

This program gives advocates of Catholic schools the opportunity to plan for and pursue continuous improvement, and it empowers principals and teachers to transform their schools at the local level.
