What HALO Does
The HALO Initiative acts as a resource hub for all of the Dallas area Catholic schools. With a cooperative network that includes community and business leaders, the Catholic Schools office, school principals and teachers, HALO is focused on bringing fresh perspectives, systems, tools and funding to the Catholic school system.
HALO is gathering the best ideas, researching and testing them. When an idea or program is approved, we secure the funding and expertise needed for the schools to implement it; without risk or need for additional investment. This allows the schools to focus on developing Saints and Scholars, while HALO focuses on innovation and sustainability.
In addition to what we are building, The HALO Initiative also streamlines and manages the processes for partners such as the Diocese Education Endowment Trust, The Bishop’s HALO Golf Tournament, Foundations and other organizations who support Dallas area Catholic education.
