School achieves 100% college acceptance!

We just learned some exciting news: Every student in Cristo Rey High School’s first graduating class has been accepted to a 4-year college! You can watch the news coverage here.
Cristo Rey was one of the first Great Schools Fund grantees. The $1.3 million startup grant helped the school open its doors to low-income students in 2012, and we are thrilled to see the continued results of that investment today.
Thanks for helping to make this possible.
