    It’s a simple concept. Take all the students in your high school, work closely with them on their rigorous academic schedule for four days a week and then drop them off “at the office” for the fifth. The result? 100% acceptance into four-year colleges, a 95% retention rate from Freshman-Sophomore year in college and a powerful, college-graduated workforce reentering your city. 

    Warning:  this model, a Cristo Rey model, is not for the meek.


    Notre Dame Cristo Rey High School Board of Directors Sign Up to Bring Members of the Freshmen Class to Their First Day on the Job

They were ready. Admittedly nervous, but ready.
