“We have taught our schools to fish as opposed to giving them the fish.”

Most Reverend James M. Moynihan, Bishop of the Diocese of Syracuse, New York

Strategic Management

Catholic School Management has assisted hundreds of Catholic elementary schools in more than twenty Dioceses in the United States through its unique and copyrighted strategic management process. CSM’s strategic management services bring high level consulting experience directly to Catholic elementary schools, even the smallest, in a very cost-effective way. The particular demography and economic situation of each school is considered, along with individual needs. CSM consultants bring an extensive breadth and depth of experience in all facets of the operation of Catholic schools to their work with Board members, administrators, pastors, teachers, and key volunteers.

The strategic management program addresses:

  • School mission, philosophy, and vision;
  • Strategic planning;
  • Comprehensive communication planning;
  • Enrollment management planning;
  • Comprehensive development programs, including annual giving programs.

Catholic School Management’s strategic management process is designed to be highly participative and collaborative, offsetting the need for small parish elementary schools to hire directors of development.
