Transforming Urban America One Student At a Time 速

cristo rey network 2015 Annual Report


Our Mission The Cristo Rey Network empowers thousands of students from underserved low-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 transform urban America. Cristo Rey high schools have forged a distinctive approach to inner-city education that equips students with the knowledge, character, and skills to transform their lives. The largest network of high schools in the country that exclusively serve low-income youth, the Cristo Rey Network is successfully advancing the Catholic tradition of educational excellence and individual formation in marginalized communities. From freshman year, schools establish a culture of high-expectations by integrating rigorous college preparatory academics, four years of professional work experience, Catholic educational values, and support for students to and through college. The Cristo Rey Network national office ensures the quality and vitality of the movement by: • Scaling and standardizing effective and innovative practices across all schools in academics, college enrollment and completion, and the Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP) • Facilitating new school growth through development and implementation of a national growth plan and active support for new schools in all critical areas • Supporting mission accountability through school evaluations and data collection, analysis, and application • Stewarding national branding, visibility, and fundraising

Letter from Leadership Dear Friends: Nineteen years after our first school opened its doors, the fundamentals of a Cristo Rey education remain remarkably constant. Our schools are Catholic schools, committed to the education of young women and men from economically disadvantaged families through an integrated program of college preparatory academics and corporate work study experience. The creativity and wisdom of the Cristo Rey model has become increasingly clear over time. The Corporate Work Study Program was an innovative approach to ensuring a school’s financial sustainability. Its integration with high quality academic preparation pioneered an equally innovative approach to student formation. By assisting our students to draw the connections between the academic and professional worlds, our schools foster student competence, confidence, and aspiration. This annual report provides some insight into the success that our schools are having in changing the trajectories of their students’ lives. That success merits celebration but does not invite complacency. It instead fuels our commitment to growth and our strategic focus on increasing student performance through continued assessment, improvement, and innovation. The Network has developed an approach to replication that enables our new schools to launch with impressive strength and capacity. We are following up on the exciting work we did to develop a proprietary academic curriculum with a similar effort to develop a comprehensive CWSP curriculum. We have improved our schools’ ability for critical self-assessment by expanding our understanding of the data we collect and by strengthening our mission effectiveness review process. We are focused on increasing our schools’ capacity to support student persistence through college and to harness technology to better serve our academic and organizational needs. Sustaining the national Cristo Rey movement is an extraordinary group effort. It requires the talent, creativity, and commitment of our teachers, administrators, school leaders, and national staff, our supporting religious organizations, our Corporate Work Study partners, and our University Partners. It also depends upon generous and enthusiastic support from the philanthropic community. We are deeply grateful for your belief in the impact and potential of our schools and the transformative power of your investment in the Cristo Rey Network. Viva Cristo Rey!

Reflections Dear Friends: At the bus stop on the corner right outside our Cristo Rey Network office is an electronic sign that I see every morning. It says “The future won’t wait; let’s rethink high school,” and it makes me think as I read it daily. The first thing I think, as a matter of fact, is that’s what we have already done at the Network. Our whole Cristo Rey movement is the fruit of rethinking secondary education. I hope it’s not hubris to say we have already made an extremely valuable contribution in our Corporate Work Study Program. Anyone who entertains a new approach to education from now on, at least for adolescents who are on the margins, would have to take into account the work component. And I don’t mean that it is important because it opens a new stream for financing schools. It’s true that was how we first conceived it, but we soon realized the educational value for an adolescent who has the opportunity to spend time as part of a professional workforce. That experience turned out to be profoundly educational and formational, something we never foresaw. The thing our students most like about our Cristo Rey schools is the job. They love becoming part of the adult world, being taken into account at the office where they work, and getting positive feedback when people recognize the good work they do. One of my favorite stories is about a person who was visiting one of our schools and a student was showing him around. At one point the visitor said to the student, “Tell me. What’s the difference between going to school and going to your workplace?” The student thought for a moment and then answered, “At work, you have to get it right the first time.” What a brilliant insight for this adolescent to recognize. I rest my case about the work experience being educational and formational. The next thing that comes to mind after I read that sign at the bus stop is how important it is to stay creative. How easy it is for all of us to rest on our laurels after having come up with a good idea. I think it is always valid to ask ourselves that question. Do we continue to create? I hope and pray that our Cristo Rey movement always be characterized by a tendency to dream of new solutions for seemingly impossible situations.

Remember when the friends of the paralytic carried him to see Jesus who was passing through town (Luke 5:19)? They found that the house where Jesus was staying was packed with people. Did they throw up their hands and turn around and go home, saying maybe we can come back tomorrow? No. They very creatively took their friend up on the roof, removed some of the tiles and let their friend down to where Jesus couldn’t miss him. That is creativity. That is what your support enables us to do with the Cristo Rey movement. Sincerely in Cristo Rey,

John P. Foley, S.J. Chair Emeritus and Chief Mission Officer

In Memoriam Fr. TJ Martinez, SJ | 1970-2014 Founding President, Cristo Rey Jesuit College Preparatory High School of Houston

The Cristo Rey movement suffered a painful setback with the death of Antonio “TJ” Martinez, SJ, founding president of Cristo Rey Jesuit in Houston and uncontainable enthusiast of the Cristo Rey mission wherever it was adopted. From the time of his assignment by his Jesuit Provincial to open a new school in Houston’s center city until fate called him to expend all his efforts fighting a losing battle against cancer, TJ became a living example of the motto he so frequently quoted: “we do the difficult immediately, and the impossible right after.” TJ was a dedicated and untiring cheerleader for Cristo Rey Jesuit, who believed that “if God wills it, nothing is impossible.” Our remembrance of him is our recognition of his “spunk and spirit” to undertake the difficult and stare down the impossible without flinching. In his own words, “during a time of economic recession, in the midst of Hurricane Ike, in the middle of one of the roughest parts of Houston, and out of a broken, battered, and beaten up building arose Cristo Rey Jesuit.” TJ set out to do the impossible and he accomplished it! We remember him because of the invaluable legacy that he left us, that a Cristo Rey school is a heroic response to the call of Christ our King to establish and promote the Kingdom here among us. We celebrate the fact that TJ willed us his enthusiasm and commitment. We can see him now flying around heaven, making the whole heavenly court smile and getting them all excited about the Cristo Rey movement. If you look for him, you can’t miss him! He is the angel with the gel on his hair, wearing cowboy boots and sporting a belt with an oversized buckle that says TEXAS on it. TJ is our man in heaven! From there he continues to promote the Kingdom and the mission of the Cristo Rey Network!

Year In Review N E W SCH OOLS

ACADEMIC EXCEL L ENC E

Cristo Rey Jesuit Milwaukee High School welcomed 129 freshmen students at a ribbon cutting commemorating the opening of the new school in September 2015. More than twenty local companies and organizations, including Robert W. Baird & Co, Inc., ManpowerGroup, and Marquette University, will employ students through the Corporate Work Study Program.

Three Cristo Rey Network schools ranked among the most challenging private high schools, according to Washington Post’s Jay Mathews’ Index Score: Cristo Rey Jesuit High School (Chicago), Immaculate Conception Academy (San Francisco), and Cristo Rey St. Martin College Prep (Waukegan).

NATIONAL V ISIB IL ITY Reporters coast to coast covered the innovative education model and success of the Cristo Rey movement. Stories were featured in the Associated Press, Forbes, Huffington Post, National Catholic Reporter, Philanthropy magazine, The Atlantic, Despierta America, Al Jazeera America, and more. Cristo Rey Dallas College Prep opened in August 2015 with an inaugural class of 127 freshmen. To accomodate growth, Cristo Rey Dallas has launched a $25 million capital campaign. AT&T, The Dallas Morning News, and Jones Day are among the school’s 35 Corporate Partners. Notre Dame Cristo Rey High School on Despierta America

The Lexington Institute published The Cristo Rey Network: Serving Sustainable Success, documenting Cristo Rey’s growth and unique approach to learning both in the classroom and in the workplace. Cristo Rey San Jose Jesuit was profiled as the Network’s first school to pilot a blended learning program. 6 | www.cristoreynetwork.org


GLO BA L I M P A CT In August 2015, Cristo Rey Jesuit (Chicago) participated in a virtual conversation with Pope Francis in anticipation of his historic trip to the United States. Cristo Rey seniors Valerie and Alexandra spoke with the Pope about their lives and personal challenges. At the request of Pope Francis, Valerie sang to him, moving viewers and generating global media attention. The ABC News special program aired on “20/20.”

During Pope Francis’ visit to the United States, Cristo Rey schools hosted Pope2Congress watch parties and several delighted students participated in intimate events, including: Eight Don Bosco Cristo Rey (Washington, DC) students welcoming the Pope at Andrews Air Force Base; Cristo Rey Brooklyn student Christina (below) greeting Pope Francis at JFK Airport; and

Groups from Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit and Cristo Rey Jesuit (Houston) traveling to Philadelphia to join the 2Philly4Francis pilgrimage and celebrating Mass with the Pope. “It is a wonderful opportunity for cross curricular work with Theology, government, art, and English. Many of the issues Pope Francis discusses are issues that face our students.” Sr. Suzanne Fitzmaurice, Cristo Rey Kansas City Theology Teacher

Academic Excellence

The Cristo Rey Network delivers high-impact academic programs to propel the highest quality teaching, learning, and academic leadership in Cristo Rey schools. The goal is that all Cristo Rey students will graduate from high school and college. To achieve this objective, the Cristo Rey Network academic team focuses on the following priorities: College-Ready Curriculum: Ongoing review and refinement of the proprietary network-wide curriculum, aligned to the Common Core State Standards, ACT College Ready Standards, and the College Board, to ensure appropriate rigor and promote student success. Assessment-Driven Instruction: Implement formative and summative classroom assessments, along with Cristo Rey Network aligned end-of-course assessments, to inform instruction and curricular planning. Teacher Effectiveness: Facilitate professional development demonstrably focused on high-impact, research-based instructional strategies that explicitly increase Cristo Rey students’ ability to achieve college readiness. Principal Leadership: Deliver targeted professional development and coaching framework that enable principals to lead effective teaching in the classroom and drive student learning school-wide.

“We are a whole network of people who educate together, learn together, strategize together, break bread together, support together and pray together...We all were placed at this particular time to unite and complete the task of helping the youth of today with the blessings and guidance of God using the extraordinary methods of the Cristo Rey Network.” - Marcia Pecot, founding faculty member Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School

Corporate Work Study Program

Through the Corporate Work Study Program, a team of four students shares one entry-level job at a professional company to earn the majority of their high school tuition while gaining real work experience and mentorship in corporate America. Students collectively earned $50 million at 2,325 Corporate Partners while acquiring the behaviors and habits of mind for success, developing an understanding of the relevance of their education, and reimagining the potential for their futures. With the help of Corporate Partners, Cristo Rey schools are a national leader in building a pipeline of diverse, 21st century talent and preparing underserved youth for the demands of the growing knowledge-based economy. To enhance the career readiness of students, the national office’s Corporate Work Study Program team is leading an innovative effort to articulate our learning goals, plan the scope and sequence of, and measure hard and soft skill development through the design and implementation of a best-in-class workplace-training curriculum. The Corporate Work Study Program team, and experts from five Cristo Rey schools, worked in consultation with Corporate Partners’ Human Resources professionals to draft curriculum benchmarks that standardize and elevate the quality of workplace-training throughout a student’s career at Cristo Rey. During summer training, seven schools piloted the curriculum with their Freshman Class of 2019. Benchmarks and aligned assessment tools have been revised for the next phase of schools that will implement the curriculum in the spring of 2016.

College Initiatives

The Cristo Rey Network aims to eradicate the predictive power of economic status over the educational trajectories of underserved students, and data demonstrates progress to celebrate. Cristo Rey graduates are attaining college degrees at more than twice the rate of all low-income high school graduates. Cristo Rey schools create a robust college-going culture from freshman year and increasingly recognize that coupling strong college counseling with continued support for graduates during their post-secondary education, powerfully advances college access, persistence, and completion. With a growth plan forecasting 20,000 alumni by 2020, the Network’s College Initiatives team is leading schools in implementation of the following priorities, which are either underway or in the planning stages:

ALUM N I CO N N E CT

CURRICUL UM

In partnership with the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, the Cristo Rey Network has enhanced alumni data collection efforts through the customization and implementation of the Dell Scholar Administrative and Alumni portals. Pilots are currently underway in six Cristo Rey schools to follow their graduates and to tailor intervention strategies with struggling alumni.

The Network will work with schools to refine and expand a college counseling curriculum aligned with the network-wide academic framework to deepen the college-going culture from day one of high school. Curriculum implementation sessions will teach college counselors how to best use assessments to evaluate growth and successful college match.

P RO F E SSI O N A L D E VE LOP MENT

UNIV ERSITY PARTNERSHIPS

The College Initiatives team will collaborate with college counselors to develop online toolkits and resource manuals for effective college counseling programs. This includes optimizing technology tools and leading professional development trainings.

The University Partnership program actively connects students with 46 colleges and universities that recognize the value of a Cristo Rey education and the promise of our graduates. University Partners respond to the needs of Cristo Rey graduates and seek to recruit, mentor, and support them financially and programmatically.

Network Growth

In June 2015, the Cristo Rey Network Board of Directors approved the associate membership of Cristo Rey Baton Rouge High School and Cristo Rey Tampa High School, both on target to open in 2016. As a growing network, Cristo Rey’s momentum to strengthen the U.S. educational landscape continues, with a goal to serve 14,000 students in 40 high schools by 2020. Three strategic priorities lead the Network’s growth plan: 1. Continue to open new schools in large metro areas, with special focus on choice markets 2. Explore growth into mid-size cities that have access to school choice funding 3. Open second Cristo Rey campus in major markets with existing school Having institutionalized replication procedures that ensure strong school starts, the Cristo Rey Network has identified 18 markets for potential studies to explore the feasibility of opening a Cristo Rey school. While two new schools are scheduled to open in summer 2016, three more communities are currently undergoing this process, which examines demographic data, educational opportunities, and other relevant market information.

Mission Support and Accountability

The Cristo Rey Network protects the integrity of the Cristo Rey model as defined by the Mission Effectiveness Standards, which articulate the common identity of member schools. To ensure mutual accountability, promote innovation and improvement, and foster sharing and support, all schools participate in regular Mission Effectiveness Reviews that assess school performance against each standard. With the collaboration of school presidents, the Network revised the review process this year to more effectively combine informed critical assessment with support for improvement in areas of challenge and encouragement for continued success in areas of strength.

M issio n E ffectiv en ess Stan dards As a member of the Cristo Rey Network, a school: 1. Is explicitly Catholic in mission and enjoys Church approval. 2. Serves only economically disadvantaged students. The school is open to students of various faiths and cultures. 3. Is family centered and plays an active role in the local community. 4.
