Every child deserves a quality education.

Students are at the core of everything we do. Each student in our urban academies is known, loved, and called to excellence.

Our Commitment To Students

We help families support their child’s academic journey.

Knowing each family, and the challenges they may be facing, helps us develop programs that work for everyone.

Our Commitment To Families

Dedicated educators deliver on our promises every day.

Our innovative programs help to support, develop, and retain our outstanding teachers, resulting in higher student achievement and attendance rates.

Our Commitment To Educators

Innovating and collaborating to transform

Campaign for Catholic Schools (CCS) was founded to achieve sustainable, transformative change to improve Catholic education in underserved communities in Greater Boston.

A need for change

With declining enrollment threatening the future of 10 individual parish schools in two cities…

A new path forward

CCS assisted in creating two vibrant regional academies across ten urban campuses in Dorchester, Brockton, Lawrence, Lowell, South Boston, and Quincy. 

Two thriving urban academies

Today, CCS’s regional and innovative approach delivers quality Catholic education to more than 1,460 students in urban communities from PreK to Grade 8 through its two co-sponsored regional Academies on five campuses.

Saint John Paul II Catholic Academy (SJPIICA) is the largest elementary school in Boston, serving more than 1,050 students on three campuses.

Trinity Catholic Academy (TCA) is a two-campus academy in Brockton, MA serving more than 400 students on PreK – Grade 8.

Sustaining change through a model of co-sponsorship

CCS has moved beyond the role of solely a funding organization, establishing a legal co-sponsorship. This enables us to create sustainable impact and growth through good times and challenging times.

Changing lives. Every day.

Our mission bears its fruit in the success stories of our students, families, educators, and communities.
