“With 52 schools representing 17,700 students, we've known Catholic School Management for over 12 years. There are several specific initiatives underway in our schools as a result of our work with them. They are a hands-on organization, they follow through and they are always accessible as a reference. Their plan all along was for us to work our way out from using them. Catholic School Management is top notch.”

Assistant Superintendent of Schools, Diocese of Sacramento, Sacramento, CA

Leadership, Ownership & Governance

The Holland/Bryk research, "Effective Catholic Schools: An Exploration" closely tie the relationships between ownership, governance and financial viability for Catholic schools. Catholic School Management consultants are experienced in dealing with ownership issues related to diocesan, religious community, parish, inter-parish and separate corporation models. Both civil law and Canon Law requirements are addressed in ownership studies and in the design of appropriate ownership-governance models. Governance structures for Catholic schools are tailored to the ownership requirements and may involve boards which are consultative, of limited jurisdiction, or those with full fiduciary responsibility. Catholic School Management consultants pay particular attention to the relationships between ownership, governance, sponsorship and administration.

Some of our services include:

  • Board member and leadership pre-service and in-service training
  • Canon Law issues
  • Ownership/Governance structures and models designed
  • Parent-teacher organization leadership training
  • School structures (consolidations, collaborations, regionalizations)
  • Sponsorship issues
