Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, Cotter Schools, and Winona Area Catholic Schools proudly entered into a collaboration memorandum as they formally commit to the joint effort of supporting Catholic education in Winona. This agreement is an understanding to promote the values and purposes of Catholic education.

The three entities (Saint Mary’s University, Cotter Schools and WACS) will provide services to one another in the areas of professional development, faith formation, and fostering a shared commitment to community needs. The schools will work to enhance collaborative programs that already occur on an individual basis as well as introduce and facilitate new initiatives.
