新奥尔良罗耀拉大学 Announces New Partnership with Holy Name of Jesus School
After more than 100 years of living side by side as neighbors, 新奥尔良罗耀拉大学 and Holy Name of Jesus Parish and School are taking their relationship to the next level. On Tuesday, the heads of all three institutions, together with the Archdiocese of 新奥尔良, 宣布通过视频 一种新的伙伴关系将帮助学生, 家庭, 教师和员工在社区中共同成长, 信仰, 学习, 部门和任务.
“差不多有500年了, the Jesuits have stood for excellence in education – in Europe and across the world, 正如完美体育所知，他们帮助创造了教育,罗耀拉大学校长塔尼亚·泰特洛说. “We are excited to partner with an elementary school that is carved into our campus, to see the Holy Name students engage with our high-tech 设施 and science labs. There is nothing more inspiring sometimes than having really good questions from fourth-graders on a field trip to remind you why you love teaching.”
The strategic partnership began as a conversation several years ago, 当Tetlow, 1984年的女校友, visited Holy Name of Jesus School at the invitation of the Rev. 马克为了年代.J. and Principal Kirsch Wilberg, the new leaders of Holy Name of Jesus Parish and School. 在一起, the three executives instantly saw new possibilities for working together and began a process of exploration and discernment.
“已经, the two schools enjoyed a shared Jesuit mission—a mission to form men and women and boys and girls for others: a mission to help the next generation of New Orleanians become the Christian disciples and servant leaders that God is calling them to be,”为了表示. “We felt that there were fresh opportunities for partnering with one another in this common mission. 罗耀拉大学 could share its rich resources in the areas of faculty-support, 设施, 技术, 体育等. And Holy Name of Jesus School could provide for Loyola a hands-on training opportunity for its students.”
在过去的三年里, Loyola and Holy Name of Jesus School have implemented new programs that benefit students, 家庭, 教职员工. 圣名吸收了惠兰中心, 这是洛约拉以前的日托所, and incorporated it into a “Little Gators” program open to both institutions’ 教职员工 at a discounted rate. An inaugural summer camp at Holy Name enjoyed swimming and exercise at Loyola’s Recreational Sports Complex, 以及参观STEM实验室. And professors at Loyola began visiting Holy Name classrooms, serving as guest speakers and helping elementary teachers consider their curriculums with an eye toward collaborations that would help to develop lifelong 学习ers.
A primary benefit of the partnership lies in teaching, 课程发展与学术充实, Wilberg说.
已经, Holy Name students have visited Loyola’s state-of-the-art communication studios and STEM labs, enjoyed concerts and performing arts presentations on campus and taken nature walks with faculty from Loyola’s Environment program. The hope is to continue collaborations that will help enrich teaching and 学习 opportunities at both institutions.
教职员工也会受益. In addition to stretching their teaching capabilities and growing in community, Loyola 教职员工 can send their children to Holy Name to begin receiving a Jesuit education starting at age one. 同样的, Holy Name 教职员工 can pursue higher education at Loyola, 两者都有学费折扣.
“…I am so excited to be here today with the leadership of 罗耀拉大学 and Holy Name of Jesus Parish and School to announce this unique and one-of-a-kind partnership between these Catholic institutions,“博士说. RaeNell休斯顿, director of the Dept of Catholic 教育 and Faith Formation of the Archdiocese of 新奥尔良 and Superintendent of Catholic Schools.
“从现在开始, 他们将不再只是共享地理位置, 但要在事奉和传道中真正成为伙伴. This is an extraordinary opportunity that will now be realized to benefit the faculties and students at both institutions in unique and creative ways both in and beyond the classroom.”
Archbishop Gregory Aymond gave the partnership his blessing.
“It is with great joy and hope for the future of Catholic education that we have shared this news of a formal partnership between 罗耀拉大学 and Holy Name of Jesus School,艾蒙德在视频声明中说. “我感谢Fr. 泰特洛总统和蒂波迪奥女士. Wilberg for the time and efforts they and their staffs have made to make this a reality. I believe this work is inspired by the Holy Spirit and will aid everyone involved in becoming lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ as they grow, 学习, and are formed through the opportunities afforded by these two Catholic institutions coming together.”
