Cristo Rey Network 2014 Annual Report and 2020 Vision


MISSION & APPROAC H

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.

As the largest network of urban high schools in the country enrolling only low income youth, the Cristo Rey Network delivers a distinctive approach to inner-city education that equips students with the knowledge, character, and skills to transform their lives. From freshman year, Cristo Rey schools establish a culture of high-expectations by blending rigorous academics, four years of professional work experience, Catholic moral 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 practices across all schools in academics, college erollment and completion, and the Corporate Work Study Program • Facilitating new school growth through development of a national growth plan and support for new schools • Supporting mission accountability through school evaluations and data analysis • Stewarding national branding, visibility, and fundraising

L E T TER FROM THE C HAIRMAN OF THE B OARD

Dear Friends and Supporters: The two principal responsibilities of any non-profit board are to make sure that the organization has strong leadership and a solid financial base. I am pleased to report that the Cristo Rey Network has never been stronger in either respect. First, we are delighted that we were able to recruit Jane Genster to serve as President and CEO of the Network, effective November 1, 2014. Jane is a national leader on issues of college access and success. At Georgetown University, where she served for nearly fifteen years as Vice President, General Counsel, and Senior Counselor to the President, Jane was instrumental in building a strong partnership with the Cristo Rey Network, which now has 53 graduates attending the University. Jane was also the Interim Executive Director of the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching and Service at Georgetown University. She has been a member of the Board of the Cristo Rey Network, Vice Chair of the Nativity Miguel Network of Schools, and chair of the boards of two elementary schools and one secondary school—all of this on top of a distinguished legal career, including stints at the Department of Justice, in private practice, and at NBC and The Washington Post. Most importantly, Jane is a person of uncommon wisdom and strength who, in the words of Georgetown President Jack DeGioia, “exemplifies what it means to be a ‘woman for others.’” With Jane at the helm, the Network is well poised to strengthen and expand in the years to come. The Cristo Rey Network is also in solid shape financially. With strong fundraising efforts and strict control of expenses, we generated a positive cash flow of over $400,000 this fiscal year. That includes some significant non-recurring gifts, however, so we will be redoubling our efforts in the coming year to find additional sources of support for the Network and our 28 schools. To all who work so hard in so many ways to support the good work of the Cristo Rey Network, I extend my sincere thanks and appreciation. Sincerely,

Kevin Baine Chairman of the Board | Partner, Williams & Connolly, LLP

L E T TER FROM THE PRE SIDENT AND C EO

Dear Friends of Cristo Rey: “Transforming urban America one student at a time.” This statement is the unquestionably ambitious, arguably radical and—in the words of Fr. John Foley, S.J, our Chair Emeritus— simply audacious goal of the Cristo Rey Network. Yet, through the inspired work of faculties and staffs, our 28 high schools advance that goal every day. Our schools are not interchangeable. They are located across the country in 18 different states. Each school has a distinct history; its own cadre of founders and early believers; colorful and moving stories about academic, religious, community and business leaders who have taken up the challenge; and students and families who have trusted the school to deliver on its promise. But every school is unmistakably a Cristo Rey high school. All enroll only low income students. All are committed to a distinct educational model that combines rigorous college preparatory academics, a unique corporate work study program, Catholic moral values, and support for students to and through college. All share the expectation that their students will graduate from high school college-ready and workplace savvy, equipped with the character, confidence, competence and aspirations to earn a college degree, and to change their trajectories and those of their communities. This annual report, which goes to print as I assume my new role with the Cristo Rey Network, provides an overview of the strategic thinking in which the Network has engaged over the last year. This publication provides substantial information about the Network’s primary areas of focus, our assessment of the progress that we are making, and the goals and work that we have prioritized for the future. I hope that this report not only affirms the generous support that so many of you offer the Network, but also deepens the interest of readers less familiar with our achievements and ambitions. We are deeply grateful for your commitment to our mission. Very truly yours,

Jane E. Genster President and CEO

Dear Friends: Whenever I tell the Cristo Rey story, I love to refer to the fact that the very first day the students went out to work in September, 1996, “I wanted to hide under the desk.” It is true. The truth can be told that I was one of the most skeptical about the Cristo Rey Corporate Work Study Program. We had never tested it and I had visions of the companies calling us at 10:15 a.m. in the morning saying “what are we supposed to do with these kids? Please come and get them so that we can get some work done.” The wonderful part of the story is that as a matter of fact, the phone did ring that first morning, and it was the companies thanking us for sending them these amazing young people to brighten up their offices and put a smile on the faces of their other employees. We have been able to experience the positive impact our students have every day on so many work places in so many cities of the United States.

REFL EC T IONS

It is quite a leap from hiding under the desk to working with over 2,000 corporate partners in a whole gamut of professional settings. Many of our alumni/ae have ended up working for their employers after they graduated from Cristo Rey. Our program is almost always a positive experience for the companies because the students bring new life and enthusiasm to the workplace. The other people in the offices are proud that their companies would participate in such an effort to introduce industrious teenagers to the professional world, and they feel that by working with our students they are making a difference in a world that needs so much change. It is truly a win-win-win-win situation. The student wins, the school wins, the company wins and society itself does too. Our motto, “Transforming urban America one student at a time,” is worth all of our time and effort. It really is helping to bring about the Kingdom! Sincerely in Cristo Rey,

John P. Foley, S.J. Founder, Chair Emeritus, and Chief Mission Officer www.cristoreynetwork.org | 5

WORDS OF TRANSFORMAT ION

D e Vonte’ Smith and John Frank Largent Saint Martin de Porres High School (Cleveland) graduate DeVonte’ Smith ‘09 (left) supervised senior John Frank Largent ‘14 (right) at ShurTech Brands, LLC. “When I began, like any other 14-year-old working in a professional environment, I was shy and nervous. However, I was placed in a great department (Marketing Services), and I also had a great supervisor who I referred to as my work mom, which is part of the reason why I’m still there today. During my sophomore year, I was asked if I could work over school breaks and I continued to work during breaks for the next seven years, even after I graduated. Because of my hard work and dedication, I was offered a full-time position. For almost three

years I supervised John Frank Largent, and I saw the same kid that I was at his age. One thing about John is that he’s very self-motivated and believed that ‘If DeVonte’ worked hard then maybe this same opportunity is out there for me.’” – DeVonte’ Smith ‘09 Currently enrolled at Kent State University “Over the course of working at ShurTech Brands, I have gained the confidence, leadership skills, and motivation that I need to succeed in life, shaping me into a reflective and profound individual. I also built a connection with DeVonte’, who, as a mentor, has been able to guide me with advice throughout my high school career.” – John Frank Largent ‘14 Currently enrolled at Kent State University


C indy Monte squieu and Yeraldine Vasquez Notre Dame Cristo Rey High School (Lawrence, MA) employs alumnae: Cindy Montesquieu ‘09 (left) is leading admissions and Yeraldine Vasquez ‘10 (right) manages special projects at the school. “I am here to be a role model for the younger generation of Lawrence. I didn’t understand the importance of a good education as an incoming freshman at Notre Dame Cristo Rey, but I learned that it took hard work to get where I am today.” – Cindy Montesquieu ‘09 University of South Florida ‘13 Bachelor’s Degree in Communication

“To show these students, who are reflections of who I used to be in high school, that there is a whole world out there, just a grasp away, and that they too can achieve wonders if they choose…that’s why I’m here.” – Yeraldine Vasquez ‘10 Holy Cross ‘14, Bachelor’s Degree in English

Jose Madr id “I went into an education system that worked. Arrupe Jesuit High School (Denver) gifted me with mentors and teachers who cared about me. Their job description did not include staying until 9 and even 10 p.m. helping me understand my homework, but they did it. People believed in me and in my potential, and because they believed in me, I had to believe in myself. My future children are not going to be the first generation to go to college and because of that I will have responsibility to kids like myself to make this opportunity for them.” – Jose Madrid ‘10 Georgetown University ‘14

Claudi a St. Germain “I go back and forth between living with my mom and my older brother and sister and a cousin in Readville, Massachusetts and living with my dad and my older brother in Randolph. I have ten siblings – six brothers and four sisters – all of whom are older than me. Most of them have moved out and have families of their own, but a few still live with my parents. I had a hard time adjusting to life at Cristo Rey Boston at first, worried I wouldn’t be able to manage school and home and work. I started off working at the New England Aquarium which was a lot of fun, but then I was introduced to Cooley Manion Jones law firm in the second semester of my freshman year. While I completed my freshman year, sophomore year was challenging right from the start. I was angry and sad when I found out during finals week that I had to repeat a year. Though I find him intimidating, Pat Jones (a partner at Cooley Manion Jones) always asks me on my work day how I’m doing and what I want to do with my life. So I felt like I had to tell him that I had to repeat a year. Pat was great about it, he told me that it was fine that I had to repeat a year, and just do what I have to do to stay on track. Everyone at Cooley Manion Jones knows I want to be a lawyer and so they all encourage me to do whatever it takes to do well in school, even if you have setbacks like repeating a year. If it wasn’t for the support I received from the entire Cooley Manion Jones community, I don’t think I would have stayed at Cristo Rey Boston. I’m part of a family there. I assist with anything they need and sometimes they ask me to help prepare for trials because they know I’m a fast worker and I pay attention to details, which is really important for trials. I know I’m going to be a lawyer one day, and after speaking with Pat Jones, I’ve been really looking at going to Holy Cross – which is where he went to college. But for right now, I’m just focused on getting as many A’s as I can and taking advantage of every opportunity I am given.” – Claudia St. Germain, Cristo Rey Boston ‘15
