Partnership Programs

NAES encourages Episcopal schools to enter into partnership programs of many kinds, particularly with other Episcopal schools in need of support and assistance. Here is a list of programs in which your school can participate.


Haiti Partnership Program

Holy Trinity School, Port-au-Prince, HaitiThe Episcopal Diocese of Haiti is the largest diocese of the Episcopal Church and includes over 240 Episcopal schools.

The need for the mission and work of Episcopal schools in Haiti, and for supportive partnerships with Episcopal schools and organizations here in the United States, remains important and critical to the long-term rebuilding of Haiti as a whole following the earthquake of 2011. NAES urges its schools to enter into such a partnership through the diocese’s Partnership Program, either alone in in concert with other Episcopal schools and institutions.
