The Catholic School Development Program (CSDP), the signature program of the International Education Foundation, based in Mt. Laurel, NJ, invests in the sustainability and growth of Catholic schools.

This approach uses a unique model of advancement that is focused on board governance, enrollment management, development, constituent relations, and communications.

As their current work in the Dioceses of Camden, Philadelphia and Allentown demonstrates, by working from the bottom up-in the schools-and the top down-with diocesan leadership-CSDP can affect positive change and help Catholic schools regain their footing and thrive anew.
