About FOS

Our Focus

The LMU Family of Schools focuses on creating and supporting a partnership between the University and the schools in the Westchester area.

Our Theory of Change

Problem: Students are not graduating with skills necessary for personal and professional post-secondary success.

Solution: The LMU Family of Schools equips students with experiences, tools, and relationship necessary to achieve personal and professional post secondary success by providing 1) systemic and structural support to schools via professional development, coaching, and resource allocation; and 2) experiential education opportunities to students via programs and resource allocation.

Our Mission Statement
