“Meet the Partners” of the New Academy

The Diocese of Fall River is introducing current and future students and their families to the new Academy’s initial academic and foundation partners. Opening in Fall 2019, the Academy will offer a curriculum that fosters critical and analytical thinking and problem-solving skills. Announced in February, the Academy will initially serve Coyle and Cassidy School in Taunton and Bishop Connolly in Fall River in their home locations.

This event at Stonehill College is aimed at informing parents of the benefits the Academy will provide to students in the two initial affiliate schools, Coyle and Cassidy Middle and High schools and Bishop Connolly. It will include the initial partners providing critical support to ensure the success of the Academy: the University of Notre Dame, Boston College, Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), Stonehill College, and Regis College.  In addition, the Academy is partnering with two foundations: The Carney Family Charitable Foundation and The S.E.A.L. Foundation, which provides specialized education for all learners.

As the Academy’s success builds, best practices and partnerships will be expanded to benefit the Catholic schools throughout the Diocese of Fall River.

This “Meet the Partners” event will take place in the McCarthy Auditorium in the May School of Arts & Sciences on the Stonehill College campus.
