New Urban High School in Milwaukee Proving Excellence Can Be Achieved

May 24, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Wisconsin Club

900 W Wisconsin Ave
Milwaukee, 53233 United States


Urban communities around the country and here in Milwaukee are struggling to provide high quality educational opportunities to their citizens. Our speaker for this month is Andrew E Stith, Founding President of Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Milwaukee, the latest in a growing number of private schools seeking to fill the educational opportunity gap in Milwaukee.

Cristo Rey in Milwaukee is part of a nationwide network of 30 Catholic, college preparatory high schools for students from limited financial means. All Cristo Rey schools share a unique and innovative model which empowers students to pursue higher education through a rigorous curriculum and provides invaluable professional work experience through their Corporate Work Study Program. An amazing 100% of Cristo Rey students get accepted into college.

The Corporate Work Study Program is an innovative means of providing students with crucial hands-on, professional work experience. As a result of working in a business environment, students create positive relationships in the business and professional communities, build their resources, acquire valuable job experience and marketable skills, develop a network of business contacts, gain exposure to a wide range of career opportunities, inculcate a strong work ethic, and increase self-esteem. It’s no wonder why an astounding 100% of Cristo Rey students get accepted into college.

Please join us on Tuesday May 24th at 5pm Wisconsin Club to hear more about Cristo Rey High School in Milwaukee.
