"The Partnership Committee of the Convent to Education represents an innovative and forward thinking initiative that will ensure that the Diocesan Schools remain an growing and vital component of the Capital Region."

-Dr Kenneth Clough, Vice President for Institutional Advancement, Maria College



The Partnership Committee has been building the foundation for creating sustainable partnerships with local colleges, businesses and community organizations. The committee is comprised of local college, business and community leaders dedicated to enacting the strategies outlined in the Covenant to Educate section. The committee has identified and outlined strategies with local colleges, which include professional development resources for Catholic School faculty, online enrichment programs, online high school elective programs, and after school enrichment programs. Partnerships with the business community that focus on an increased awareness of Catholic School graduates are also being explored.
