Announcing 2022-2023 Higher Powered Learning Grant Winners
In its tenth year, the Higher Powered Learning grant program continues to inspire innovation in our schools. This year, individual or consortium applications, requesting up to $10,000 or $25,000 respectively, were submitted for the following system-wide strategic priorities: Social Emotional Learning, Enhanced Learning Initiatives, Innovative Resources, and Advancing Catholic Education. Each grant application was carefully reviewed to determine which projects would receive a portion of $150,000 in total funding.
On behalf of the Albany Diocesan School Board, the Catholic School Office is pleased to announce this year’s Higher Powered Learning grant winners…

Each winning school will receive their grant check at Superintendent’s Conference Day on Tuesday, September 6, at Christ our Light Church in Loudonville.
Due to the limited resources available for the program, some applications were not funded. Though worthy, the program’s funds were limited and could not award all of the grant applications received. The enthusiastic and collaborative response to the call for proposals made this year’s program quite competitive once again.
In the spring, an evaluation tool will be sent to award recipients for completion. Your cooperation with this survey will be appreciated.
Congratulations and best wishes to our winners for a successful implementation of each innovative program!
