Message from our President

        Our dream is to engage thousands of students and families in this transformative educational experience and in doing so, move generations out of poverty.

        Our students are unique and so is our education including professional work experience, blended learning, holistic support, and community service activities. The result--our first graduating class continues to beat all odds with 94% having completed their first year of college and are beginning their sophomore year in the Fall, and 84% of students in our second graduating class are going to four-year universities. That is over twice the national average for students of color from disadvantaged backgrounds and 23% higher than students from higher-income communities.

        Many of our students are first in their family to graduate high school and will be the first to go on to study in higher education. We won’t stop until they graduate from college as the diverse, values-driven leaders that Silicon Valley deems are critical to our workforce and our future. I invite you to join us and share in our mission.

 

Dr. Margaret Higgins
President of Cristo Rey San José Jesuit High School
