ChalkBooks automates your time-consuming school development work, helping free up your time to cultivate larger gifts.

ChalkBooks is the only school development and donor management platform built for K-12 schools by leading school development leaders. 

Working with Catholic schools, we know that exceeding development goals with limited staff and resources can be challenging.

Many Catholic schools are dealing with significant operating challenges, including aging buildings and continued pressure on the salaries and benefits of their staff. Many school leaders ask themselves: “How will my school sustain long-term when the budget and development goals continue to go up but the budget for staff and resources isn’t increasing fast enough to keep pace?” 

St. Peter Claver, Bishop Larkin Catholic School, Morning Star School, St. Anthony School, and many other independent schools realized it was existential to have a development partner whose sole goal is to ensure their success. 

Are you curious how ChalkBooks could help your school?

Our Mission? … Catholic School Sustainability

Just what do we mean by Catholic school sustainability?  

  1. Facilities that fully support the culture, educational program, facilities, and vision for the future. 
  2. Reliable enrollment that is resilient through shifts in the social and economic strains of the nation.
  3. Complete confidence in your current and future (endowment) financial resources.

The H&A mission for the past 21 years has been to help Catholic Schools stay alive and to thrive. Through our Master Planning Process, we have aided in engaging the entire school community, from faculty, staff, students, families, and alumni to the community at-large in a process that renews excitement, re-establishes communication and connections, revitalizes the staff, and conducts a process that establishes a solid path forward for the school. It generates a path that all are in agreement with, strategically and with financial support.

In conjunction with your Strategic Plan, the Master Planning Process provides an academic community with an opportunity to assess its current condition and needs, to reflect upon its vision for the future, and to generate a solid facility plan for fulfilling that vision, while addressing those needs. The transparent process generates excitement and financial support for educational facilities determined as the priorities.

H&A is a full-service architecture firm closely working with Catholic schools to produce exceptional designs that create an alignment between your school’s facilities, educational program, and vision for the future. 

  • Master Planning
  • Additions and Renovations
  • New Schools
