Cross Country Champion Runs for Newest Model in Urban Ed Reform
Haverford College alum and national cross-country champion Anders Hulleberg ran for Community Partnership School, a new model in urban education reform, and placed in the top 100 of the Philadelphia Half-Marathon.
A pre-kindergarten through fifth grade co-educational independent school located in North Central Philadelphia, Community Partnership School(CPS) was founded in 2006 through the collaborative efforts of Germantown Academy, one of the region’s most successful independent schools, and Project H.O.M.E., a nationally recognized social services agency. Of the school’s $1.6 million budget, only 5% comes from tuition, while the remaining 95% comes from donations.
Community Partnership School is a true to its name, as it welcomes and depends on the commitment of parents,volunteers, and community-based organizations to execute its mission. Foundedin 2006, CPS celebrated its first graduating class last June, who have matriculated to competitive academic programs such as: William Penn Charter, Springside School, KIPP Philadelphia, and Norwood-Fontbonne Academy.
Hulleberg says, “CPS is very impressive. As someone interested in urban education reform, I am happy to work here and excited to help raise money for the school.”
