President’s Update

 A Personal Note from President Jim Foley


The Students Behind Our Milestones
 

521. That's the number of college acceptances that Cristo Rey's Class of 2019 has earned so far. 100. That's the percentage of graduating seniors who have been accepted into at least one four-year college. Three. That's the number of consecutive years that Cristo Rey Columbus seniors have achieved 100% acceptance. And yes, that means every single senior in CRCHS history has been accepted into college!

Behind these impressive milestones are Cristo Rey students with
discipline and grit , who are pioneers in their communities. Many of our graduates are the first in their families to attend college, and they continue to be trailblazers and inspirations for every Cristo Rey class that follows.

Jeremiah, a member of the Class of 2019, will attend Santa Clara University in California this fall. He was one of five students chosen (out of 106 candidates from 18 Cristo Rey Network schools) to receive the ‘Cristo Rey Scholar’ distinction, which will cover his full tuition, room and board, and course-related expenses.

Students like Jeremiah work hard to excel in academics, and to lead and contribute to our school and our community. They're the backbone of our milestones, and the reason we're able to celebrate these achievements year after year. In fact, we've just surpassed another record. Collectively, the Class of 2019 has earned almost $7 million in merit-based scholarships - more than any previous Cristo Rey Columbus class.

We're overwhelmed with pride at our students' dedication and persistence to succeed. Congratulations to our seniors! P.S. If you haven't seen the video of our senior class celebrating their 100% college acceptance, you don't want to miss it! 

In celebration,

Jim Foley, School President
