A recent article in the Los Angeles Times draws attention to the Cristo Rey network of high schools. There are 25 Cristo Rey schools in 17 states. All of them serve only economically disadvantaged students. All of them feature an innovative work-study program that is a large component of the schools’ financing. Many of the schools are Jesuit high schools, and the original Cristo Rey school was developed under Jesuit sponsorship and direction in Chicago.
Thank you so much for sharing this article. These schools are changing people’s lives. I am grateful for all those who work so hard to make this happen. Blessings.
