Recap: Mid-Atlantic Professional Development Day

On Friday, September 29, the NativityMiguel Coalition held its Fall Mid-Atlantic Regional PD Day.  Over 20 participants from 9 member schools gathered at St. James School for a tour, followed by morning sessions of best practices in academics, development, and Graduate Support.

We joined the students and faculty for a delicious lunch and outdoor recess.

Jerell, class of 2013, shares some thoughts on his time at St. Martin De Porres School in New Haven Connecticut.

“Saint Martin’s gives you opportunities in life. They teach you that with hard work and education you can take advantage of those opportunities. I didn’t understand that before coming to SMPA. It’s all about helping kids achieve things they would not be achieving if they didn’t come here.”
