Feasibility Study For Community/Parish/School/Business Leaders

The Cristo Rey Network is performing a rigorous feasibility study to determine if there is a way to provide the communities in the Greater Richmond area with a long-term partner invested in the successful future of its youth. Cristo Rey Richmond High School would be a part of the largest network of high schools in the country that exclusively serve low-income youth.  The mission of all Cristo Rey Network high schools is to provide a college prep education to underserved youth.  Cristo Rey schools:

·      Are Catholic in mission and open to students of all faiths and cultures

·      Serve only economically disadvantaged students

·      Require participation by all students in the work-study program, which contributes to a major portion of each student’s tuition

·      Prepare all of its students to enter and graduate from college

Plans are being explored to enable the first class of 75-100 (with future plans of 400) students to take advantage of this unique educational model at the beginning of the 2018 school year.

(For a snapshot of the Cristo Rey model, watch this 60 Minutes feature on the first Cristo Rey school, located in Chicago.) 

Thank you for taking a few minutes to give us your thoughts on this exciting opportunity for the Richmond community.
