Vision & Mission

The Consortium is a nonprofit organization working with more than 40 school districts across western Pennsylvania on initiatives strategically designed to strengthen and broaden school leadership, engage community and empower students.

Our initiatives build cross-sector partnerships that bring resources, improvements and support to public schools.

We relentlessly advocate for excellence and equity in public education for all students.


The Consortium envisions the day when all kids in our region start school ready to learn and graduate with the skills for lifelong learning, careers and citizenship.


We work to inspire and support students and educators and connect schools with their communities to help kids imagine, plan and prepare for successful futures.
