RISING UP Cristo Rey Network 2012 Annual Report

2 | Cover Photo: Cristo Rey Boston High School College Signing Day

The further down you are, the higher you must climb. But no climb is insurmountable. And the harder the climb, the more rewarding it is when you reach the destination.

The Cristo Rey Network embraces this belief. We focus on the students with the most difficult climbs ahead - the ones that need our help most. Through rigorous academics, coupled with a Corporate Work Study Program, our students get more than the education they need; they develop the skills and capacities needed to succeed in college and in life.

Letter from the Chairman of the Board and CEO Dear Friends,

The Cristo Rey Network empowers thousands of students from underserved lower-income communities to develop their minds and hearts to become lifelong contributors to society. By providing students an extraordinary college preparatory education and a unique four-year, integrated corporate work study experience, we seek to help transform urban America. The Network Center supports the Cristo Rey schools in achieving this mission by: Implementing an initiative for teaching and learning that ensures that all Cristo Rey students are college ready by graduation; Ensuring that the Corporate Work Study Program provides valuable services to work study job sponsors and real world work experience to Cristo Rey students; Continuing to work with new communities to open Cristo Rey schools; Convening opportunities for Cristo Rey school leaders to share effective practices; Building an active, growing network of supporters of Cristo Rey in business, government, the church, philanthropy and education; Supporting existing Cristo Rey schools by assisting in the development of financial sustainability which relies primarily on revenue from the corporate work study program to fund school operations.

A recently published article, Schools That Literally Work, shared how school systems and educational entrepreneurs are looking to philanthropy to sustain their broken business models, while it should be the other way around: schools should seek new ways to contribute to the economy. Commending the Cristo Rey Network on creating a business model that does not rely primarily on traditional fundraising or government funding, the author highlighted how the Network’s 25 high schools have transformed the delivery of an affordable, quality, college preparatory education for low-income, urban youth. Further, Cristo Rey has become a critical lever of change for how corporate America creates social good for underrepresented urban students at no cost to society.

partners, benefactors, and advocates, whose support and belief in the Cristo Rey Network continue to help us rise. We recently commemorated the milestone of opening the 25th Cristo Rey school in Philadelphia, which marks what we believe to be only the halfway point in our bricks and mortar footprint. In the face of enormous need to provide more urban students with a quality education option, the Cristo Rey Network is eager to continue rising through our growth plan and the transformative initiatives described in these pages.

As we reflect on the past year, we are once again humbled by the sincere generosity of our

Rev. Joseph Parkes, S.J. Robert J. Birdsell Chairman of the Board President and CEO

Thank you for your commitment to our mission, which is enabling underserved youth to rise up. Sincerely in Cristo Rey,

Letter from the Chair Emeritus

Dear Friends, Early last summer I met Christina Garcia, a Cristo Rey alumna who introduced herself as a recent graduate of Marquette University. She said she had graduated “cum laude,” and then she added that she didn’t know what that meant. Soon after, in June, Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Pilsen held its graduation ceremony. Totally by chance I sat down next to a Cristo Rey Jesuit alumnus, Hector Hernandez, who had just graduated from Brown University. He was at the Cristo Rey graduation because his brother was among those receiving a diploma. I immediately identified Hector as the one who had just received a Fulbright scholarship and would be going this next year to Europe to study. He expressed surprise that I knew about him and, in turn, he introduced me to his mother who was in attendance as well. I greeted her in Spanish because that was how he introduced me to her. My point is how incongruous that is: a Fulbright scholar whose mother doesn’t speak English! Those two examples represent what Cristo Rey schools are doing for thousands of students

throughout the country. We are introducing them to a world they never knew, and they are taking full advantage of that introduction! We have often said that Cristo Rey schools began because of the tremendous loss of talent that is taking place in our inner-cities. Christina and Hector are precisely why we are working with these young people. God gave them talent; we are helping them bring that talent to total fruition. Our tag line is “transforming urban America one student at a time.” Cristo Rey alumni demonstrate that we are not exaggerating. How lucky we are to be able to see them rise! This Annual Report testifies to the progress all of us are making in this project of transformation. May the work continue. May the Kingdom come! In gratitude,

TRANSFORMATION MODEL The Cristo Rey Network’s outcome data is proving that low-income, urban youth will succeed in college when given a quality, college preparatory high school experience. However, it is often asked, “What specific elements are producing these results?” To answer this question, the Cristo Rey Network partnered with the Search Institute to learn what inputs of the model are the key contributors to student success. As an organization that, for 50 years, has been doing research to discover what it takes to ensure that all young people get what they need to succeed.

As the diagram illustrates, there is just not one ingredient, but a special blend of elements that prepare students to rise in college, work, and life.

“It’s a tremendous benefit, particularly for students who struggle, to have another setting where, whether it’s by virtue of their work ethic, their personality, or the particular setting that they’re in, they can be successful. They might have been struggling in the classroom, but they’ll get an outstanding evaluation from the workplace. And that helps them to feel validated.” - Cristo Rey Teacher “Just going to downtown Manhattan and seeing all those buildings, seeing all the corporate people with their suits and their little suitcases, makes you wonder - ‘Man, I could be one of those people if I just apply myself in school and just take things seriously’. . . It really does inspire you.” - Cristo Rey Alumnus “Cristo Rey teaches students to be productive humble citizens. (1) With the work, it’s showing them to be responsible, (2) with the community services - it shows them that it’s not all about doing what you need to do, but it’s also reaching out to other people and helping out. It is a nurturing environment.” - Cristo Rey Parent “The first time I came into this school I thought, ‘I really dislike my mother right now for putting me into this school because I keep getting in trouble because of dress code’... and then with the homework...I’ve never done so much homework in my life. Then, I had tests every two weeks, plus going to work. It was just so much stress and I didn’t know how to deal with it. At the time I thought I didn’t really have my social life anymore. I wanted to give up. The principal, my mother, and I had a meeting and basically he said, ‘I’m not going to let you give up.’ My teacher signed me up for tutoring, which helped a lot. It reflected on my tests, too. I started to realize that they do everything for a reason. It’s not to pick on me or anything. It’s just to prepare me for the outside world.” - Cristo Rey Student |9

Teach-Lead-Learn The Cristo Rey Network’s rigorous, college-ready curriculum is delivered by skilled teachers who use engaging, evidence-based instructional strategies to increase student achievement. On a daily basis, teachers and students collaborate on quality teaching and learning, coupled with an emphasis on lifelong learning behaviors such as teamwork, persistence, and precision. Last year, every graduate was accepted into college. With sustained effort and focus from every student and teacher, rising to college has become a

Principal Leadership: Teacher effectiveness, led at each school by a skilled principal, will prepare our students for success in college and beyond. We have put into place an explicit set of supports to develop principals’ leadership capacity, including a principal leadership coaching model, principal peer mentoring, new principal orientation, and book studies. Most principals are also engaged in a new emphasis on improved learning through use of a shared teacher coaching and evaluation framework.

reality. As teachers from 21 Cristo Rey schools continue to collaborate on implementing our common curriculum, we have extended our focus to teacher effectiveness and principal leadership to ensure that every student is prepared for success in college. Teacher Effectiveness: A variety of professional learning options are offered to support school teams in their targeted efforts, tailored to each school’s needs. With an emphasis on continuous improvement, teachers and principals routinely grow their knowledge and skills through a professional learning plan aimed at increasing student achievement. One specific focus is on literacy within all disciplines. Since literacy is the “spine” that supports success in all subjects, a committed focus on developing students’ reading and writing skills in all subject areas holds high promise for increasing student achievement. Through two targeted professional learning sessions at the 2012 Summer Institute, teachers and principals expanded their repertoires of strategies to increase reading comprehension and writing fluency. As a result, students can become stronger readers and writers in science, history, and all disciplines of study.

Supported by the generosity of the Louis Calder Foundation, the Best Buy Children’s Foundation, the New York Life Foundation, and the Dr. Scholl Foundation, Cristo Rey Network’s Teach-Learn-Lead team supports the collaborative structures that drive and sustain work across the schools to ensure college success for every Cristo Rey student.

“The Louis Calder Foundation supports Cristo Rey Network’s efforts to provide their schools with a standardsbased common curriculum and strategic professional development to ensure not only that their students graduate high school but that they are prepared to succeed in and graduate from college.”

- Holly Nuechterlein, The Louis Calder Foundation

The Cristo Rey Network partnered with The Alain Locke Initiative to train Cristo Rey Network principals to leverage the key capabilities critical to accelerating student achievement. The Alain Locke Initiative awarded three scholarships to Cristo Rey Network principals for their participation in this past summer’s training, July 9 – 27, 2012, held at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. Principals were provided with a one-of-a-kind program covering cutting edge entrepreneurial business and school leadership principles and practices that must be mastered to create a high achieving urban school. In alignment with our Teach-Lead-Learn team’s focus aimed at increasing principal and teacher leadership, the Achievement Acceleration Framework used by The Alain Locke Initiative has leveraged our principals’ capacity to create high-achieving learning environments.

The Corporate Work Study Program is a critical ingredient in the academic growth, college persistence and life success of Cristo Rey students. Currently, Cristo Rey students are learning some of the social and technical skills they need for success in college and life, but the goal is always to do a better job of training them. Therefore, the Cristo Rey Network recently launched Jobs of the Future to increase the effectiveness of the Corporate Work Study Program through continued innovation to sustain current operations, enhance the experience of students and corporate partners, and support future growth.

College Initiatives Cristo Rey High Schools with Graduates

Over the last few years, the number of Cristo Rey alumni enrolled in college has risen dramatically, from a couple of schools with graduating classes to more than 1,300 alumni from 22 high schools. The Cristo Rey Network has graduated more than 5,000 alumni in the past decade and we will reach 10,000 alumni by 2015. Incredibly, more than 88% of these alumni have enrolled in college and 90% have persisted into their second year of

postsecondary education.


As a result of this alumni growth, key roles have emerged to ensure the Network and its schools are able to successfully track, engage, and support alumni on their journey to college success. For example, eleven Cristo Rey schools have dedicated resources to hire an Alumni Advisor to engage and support alumni utilizing the AlumniConnect platform. Likewise, the Network recently hired its first alumnus, Andy Laureano, to take on the new role as Associate Director of Alumni Tracking & Support. He collaborates closely with Alumni Advisors to support the implementation of the AlumniConnect platform and develops new strategies for supporting alumni once they are in college. In addition, Andy is establishing a new cohort of ten alumni leaders, called Alumni Ambassadors, to support their peers in college and to explore a future Cristo Rey Alumni Association.


Furthermore, Cristo Rey’s University Partners continue to serve as the the cornerstone of the organization’s College Initiatives. Partnering institutions have doubled to 40 colleges and universities across the country committed to supporting Cristo Rey Network students and schools.

Expansion Plan Given the recent enactment of school choice legislation in a number of states, there is an historic opportunity to open new financially sustainable Cristo Rey high schools supported not only by revenue from the Corporate Work Study Program, but also by school vouchers and education tax scholarships. The Walton Family Foundation has recently joined the Network as a lead strategic partner in these efforts by announcing an investment of $1.6 million in Cristo Rey with the goal of doubling the number of member schools across the country. Through this support, Cristo Rey will continue to rise. In addition to this investment, the Foundation will be providing new Cristo Rey schools in school choice markets access to start up grants. With 25 schools currently in operation, the grant will allow the Cristo Rey Network to accelerate the organization’s vision and growth plan. In light of the enormous need for quality education options, the Network is working towards 50 schools by 2022, serving 25,000 innercity students who do not have access to a quality, college preparatory education. The Cristo Rey Network’s replication success in the past ten years has been made possible by several key investors, in particular the Cassin Educational Initiative Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The next decade of growth will transform even more lives through quality education that enables youth to rise.

By examining demographic data, educational opportunities, competitors, and other relevant market information, the Cristo Rey Network has prioritized the following cities as target markets across the United States: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15.

“Today many parents choose Cristo Rey for their children’s education, and we want to help make this quality school choice available to even more families. When all parents have the ability to choose quality schools for their children, a competitive dynamic emerges that can inspire the broader public schools system to improve, helping transform public education in our nation.” - Bruno V. Manno, Senior Advisor for the Systemic K-12 Education Reform Focus Area, The Walton Family Foundation

Healthy Lifestyles Initiative Nutrition is critical to students’ emotional, intellectual, and physical performance in the classroom and in the workplace. By making healthy choices, students increase their focus and engagement, which enables teachers to advance learning and help student achievement rise. With generous support from the National Recreation Foundation, the Cristo Rey Network is strengthening its institutional approach to providing health and wellness education during students’ critical years of growth, development, and learning. During a five month planning process, selected Cristo Rey schools received a grant to fund their development and implementation of a multi-year plan aimed at: 1. Increasing students’ understanding of the importance of nutrition and food 2. Engaging students in more physical and leisure activities, as well as increasing greater understanding of its importance to their overall health 3. Increase students’ awareness of how healthy choices contribute to all aspects of life Long-term, the Healthy Lifestyles Initiative will help reverse the trend of obesity by equipping our students with the knowledge and resources to initiate healthy habits they will be able to model for their families and carry with them through life.

I love that about our kids. What about that is so satisfying?
