Catholic Schools Collaborative
The Catholic Schools Collaborative (CSC) is an innovative 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization created to build the academic and operational capacity of Los Angeles' poorest Catholic elementary schools. As an architect of impactful partnerships and expert program manager, the CSC builds and coordinates multi-school initiatives in partnership with third-party partners and multiple funders. The CSC meets schools where they are and works with school leadership to determine what services and assistance the school needs to blossom into the best version of itself.
Our operational strategy is our SIMPLE Approach: the Site Infused Model for Personalized Learning Environments. We believe that every school's vitality depends on four key areas -- Operational Vitality, Academic Excellence, Socio-Emotional Supports, and Parent/Family/Community Engagement -- and that comprehensive, mutual support across all areas is the surest path to lasting, systemic change. Our network of partnerships and partner services include a variety of options in each pillar area.
