A Message from the Chairman Dear Friends, It is a pleasure to report that this past year was successful in a number of very important ways, and as a result, Extra Mile’s mission – to provide an exceptional educational resource to children in urban neighborhoods through Catholic elementary schools – was greatly advanced. • In addition to support of our two subsidy schools, we have increased our efforts to serve more children by increasing the number of scholar schools to six and offering scholarship support to nearly 100 more children. Enrollments are up by nearly five per cent at St. Benedict the Moor School and Sr. Thea Bowman Catholic Academy. We support the education of nearly 600 children. • In late 2014, Extra Mile completed work on a three-year plan that emphasized three areas: 1) continued emphasis on academic achievement: 2) enrollmentbuilding; and 3) increased support to middle-school students and their families as students transition from eighth grade into the critically important first year of high school. New programs will be implemented, strengthening the skills needed for a successful high school experience, as well as assisting students and families in making the right choices for secondary education. These new initiatives protect the investment made in our students at the elementary level. That investment is made possible through contributions from corporations, foundations and individuals throughout the region. Everyone involved with Extra Mile is very grateful. The Extra Mile Education Foundation is celebrating its 25th year of leadership in urban education. More than 1,600 graduates have been equipped with an excellent education. Thank you for your investment in their future.

J. Christopher Donahue Chairman of the Board

A Message from Bishop David A. Zubik Dear Friends, Since its founding 25 years ago, Extra Mile’s mission has remained constant—to help children residing in urban areas obtain a values-based, quality education in a Catholic elementary school. Since 1990, it is estimated that nearly 4,000 children have been helped by schools or scholarship programs supported by Extra Mile. Nearly all are students who know the hard knocks of life. Nearly all the families endure difficult financial circumstances. Nearly all are children of other faiths, whose families welcome the religion classes and curriculum of Catholic schools. You might say that Extra Mile and the schools it supports level the playing field so that children, regardless of their circumstances, have an opportunity for a quality education. I like to think that Extra Mile is a great exercise of faith. The parents, after learning what the Extra Mile Schools have to offer, have faith that their children will learn and soar as they discover their own individual strengths and talents that will keep them on the road to success. The leadership and faculty of the Extra Mile Schools have all that it takes to support a great educational process, emphasizing academic excellence, values, mutual respect, safety and self-esteem, and within the Catholic tradition. The Board and staff of the Extra Mile Education Foundation have, since its inception, had the vision and the passion that their work in bringing a dream into reality and sustaining that reality does in fact enable the Extra Mile students to have a realistic dream for their future. All donors to Extra Mile are makers of many dreams come true! Thank you to so many people for keeping the dream alive, and for 25 years. Now, on to the next 25! Grateful for our belief that “Nothing Is Impossible with God,” I am Your brother in Christ,

Most Reverend David A. Zubik Bishop of Pittsburgh
