About the Schools
The schools supported by Extra Mile have met rigorous criteria and earned accreditation by the nationally respected Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Studies by the University of Pittsburgh have rated the schools as outstanding.

The assistance that Extra Mile Education Foundation provides takes the form of school subsidies at three schools–St. Benedict the Moor in the Hill District, Sr. Thea Bowman Catholic Academy in Wilkinsburg and Northside Catholic Assumption Academy in Brighton Heights. In addition, Extra Mile also serves children attending other area Catholic schools through scholarship support.

Through its schools and scholar program, Extra Mile serves over 600 students from pre-kindergarten to eighth grade. Students are pre-dominantly African American and of many faiths. Families choose these schools for access to an academically sound and values-based education for their children.

If interested in learning further about the schools, enrollment and/or financial aid, please contact the individual school directly
