Running the Broad Street Run to help CPS bring a high-quality education to North Philadelphia!
Community Partnership School (CPS) is transforming the face of urban education in North Central Philadelphia. In this area, families have very few options when it comes to their children’s education: neighborhood schools are not only overcrowded and grossly under-performing, but also frequently dangerous.
CPS was founded in 2006 with the goal of making an excellent, rigorous, independent school education affordable and accessible to low-income families, providing an alternative to the neighborhoods’ failing schools. The school represents an innovative partnership between founding institutions Germantown Academy, one of the region's most successful independent schools, and Project H.O.M.E., a nationally-recognized non-profit organization dedicated to ending homelessness. Behind Community Partnership School lies a simple belief: with a top-notch education—the type delivered at the country’s best independent schools—urban children can achieve at the same level as their more affluent suburban peers.
CPS's first class of graduates have successfully transitioned to rigorous middle schools such as William Penn Charter, Norwood-Fontbonne Academy, KIPP Philadelphia, and Springside School.
