Best Practices for Catholic Schools: Regionalization

The Archdiocese of New York’s schools faced a set of challenges common to many parish-based schools across the nations including declining enrollment, cost to educate exceed tuition, increased instruction/administrative costs and depleted financial resources. The Catholic school model of “one parish, one school,” that had successfully served us for more than 200 years was no longer sustainable for the majority of our elementary schools. As a result, regionalization – transitioning most elementary schools from a parish based to a more sustainable regional model – was initiated.
