"Catholic School Advantage" in the News: Cardinal Dolan Comments on Campaign's Value in WSJ
ACE Latino Enrollment Initiative Called Part of Archdiocesan Strategy
His Eminence Timothy Cardinal Dolan has affirmed the Catholic School Advantage campaign, an initiative of Notre Dame's Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE), as an important part of his strategic plan for sustainable Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of New York.
In a commentary published in the Feb. 1 edition of The Wall Street Journal, Cardinal Dolan said the archdiocese is continuing its outreach to Latino families whose children are well served by Catholic schools.
Outlining the "Pathways to Excellence" strategic plan, he said attentiveness to today's immigrants will be intensified, "and through efforts like the Catholic School Advantage Program, run in conjunction with Notre Dame University, the archdiocese is reaching out to Hispanic and Latino parents to invite them to our Catholic schools."
Cardinal Dolan, who elsewhere has described ACE as a source of "hope and promise," said in the Wall Street Journal commentary that Catholic schools "are a 'pearl of great price,' worth every drop of sweat and ounce of effort that we are making on their behalf."
