Where We Serve: New York

New York

The Archdiocese of New York along with the Partnership Schools invited the Alliance for Catholic Education to serve the Catholic school communities of Harlem and the South Bronx in 2016. Four teachers from ACE 23 are the first to serve in the five boroughs, while several graduates from ACE Teaching Fellows and the Mary Ann Remick Leadership program serve in Catholic schools around the city.

  • "I said yes to ACE because education is the biggest social justice issue of our generation and I felt called by the Spirit to lead the change. Learning and serving through ACE helps Catholic schools provide a quality education in urban and rural settings."
