Cristo Rey Network Announces New Seats Fund Recipients
The Cristo Rey Network announced Network school recipients for the organization’s New Seats Fund, a $1.25 million investment by The Howley Foundation to support school-specific projects with seed money to achieve target full enrollment goals.
Eight Cristo Rey schools will benefit from this grant for a two-year period beginning July 1, 2019, including:
Cristo Rey Baton Rouge Franciscan High School
Cristo Rey Brooklyn High School
Christ the King Jesuit College Preparatory School (Chicago)
Cristo Rey De La Salle East Bay High School
Providence Cristo Rey High School (Indianapolis)
Cristo Rey Newark High School
Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School
San Miguel High School (Tucson)
This new opportunity will allow schools to address either the admissions or Corporate Work Study Program limitations that most significantly inhibit reaching full enrollment. Grantees will participate in respective Best Practice Working Groups that will be comprised of quarterly calls led by the Cristo Rey Network national office.
The Fund will support up to 20 Cristo Rey schools over three years.
