Student Testimonial Tuesday! ‘I like that Archbishop Borders School is a dual language school, because being bilingual brings many opportunities in the future. ABS always has great teachers. The school has events for the community and events that help families and students.’ Translated from Geselle’s Spanish writing. #riseabove #studentspotlight @archbaltschools

Yesterday our second graders held an Adjective Fashion Show in English Language Arts! They wore a bunch of accessories and walked the catwalk. The other students came up with as many adjectives as they could to describe their accessories. For example, soft sweater, fluffy hat, sparkly sweatshirt and scarf, shiny necklace, etc. Way to go, Grade 2!

In honor of #throwbackthursday, here is a cover photo from several years ago.

Our Story

The missions of our Catholic schools and the Partners In Excellence (PIE) Scholarship Program are rooted in the belief that every child is priceless - and that they have God-given gifts which need to be discovered and nurtured. What better place to do this than a Catholic school?

Founded in 1996, the Partners In Excellence (PIE) Scholarship program of the Archdiocese of Baltimore works to give the opportunity of a high-quality education to those who may otherwise not be able to afford such an opportunity for their children. Over the past 24 years, PIE has provided thousands of students with the tuition assistance needed to enroll in a Catholic school here in the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Through the generosity of individuals, businesses and foundations, scholarship recipients receive the benefits of a sound Catholic education in a safe school, regardless of their own religious affiliation. With a tradition of providing a strong values-based education with high expectations for behavior and effort in a deeply caring and personalized school setting, Baltimore Catholic schools are setting these students on a path towards success.

General information

For families who live in poverty, sending a child to a Catholic school often requires heroic sacrifices. PIE offers partial scholarships to those who meet eligibility requirements to help bridge the gap between what a family can pay and the cost of tuition. Most families pay an average 60% of tuition ($5,300 for elementary school, $13,000+ for high school). PIE scholarships average approximately $2,500. Investment by the families is a key part of why the program works and why students are successful. Since 1996, over 25,500 scholarships worth nearly $30 million have been awarded.
