The mission of Cardinal Ritter College Prep High School is to provide an exceptional Catholic educational experience to youth that instills attitudes of success and self-worth through faith development, academic excellence and leadership.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT Dear Friends, Last May, when we wrapped up the Cardinal Ritter Prep school year, I revisited our namesake’s bold commitment to ensuring a quality education for those who are often disenfranchised in the broader educational system. In 1947, Cardinal Joseph Ritter illustrated the depth of this commitment by courageously desegregating the St. Louis Catholic Schools – seven years prior to the Brown vs. Board of Education Supreme Court Decision. Today, almost seventy years later, that commitment is alive and well at the institution that bears his name: Cardinal Ritter Prep. It is indeed an honor and a privilege to serve as President of an institution that is at the forefront of helping young people in the St. Louis Metropolitan area fulfill their hopes and dreams. Thirty years ago, I joined the faculty of Cardinal Ritter Prep and began working as the Leadership Director. My goal at the time was to build a program that would inspire and engage students. I wanted them to focus on love of self, cultural and historical relevance, pride, determination, and service to others. We taught them that these were the same leadership qualities that fueled our ancestors – allowing them to overcome extraordinary challenges and accomplish great things. We emphasized that quitting was – and still is – not an option! These qualities and lessons remain at the heart of a Cardinal Ritter Prep education today. Our talented faculty and staff are dedicated to guiding, teaching and developing our students. With a focus on academics, leadership, and faith – our graduates are well-prepared to succeed in their respective life pursuits. We ensure that every Cardinal Ritter student is: • Enlightened in faith • Nurtured with compassion • Enriched by excellence • Called to leadership The effectiveness of our mission is evident in the accomplishments of our students. The Class of 2013 is on track for success: (1) 100% graduation rate; (2) 100% college acceptance rate; and, (3) the 57 graduates earned roughly $1,400,000 in scholarship grants for college. Ultimately, our objective is for our students to attain fulfilling careers and lead productive lives that in turn build strong communities. The Cardinal Ritter Prep legacy is strong and despite changing times and a sagging economy, we have overcome tremendous odds. I believe that the future is bright and with determination and tenacity, Cardinal Ritter Prep will continue to be a “drum major” for Catholic education – producing graduates who achieve great things within their local communities, city, nation and the world. On behalf of the entire Cardinal Ritter College Prep community, I thank you for your continual generosity, dedication and support of the Cardinal Ritter Prep mission. With your help, we can keep making a difference through our students. You remain always in our prayers. Peace & Blessings,

Leon C. Henderson President

A MESSAGE FROM THE ARCHBISHOP Since 1979, the students, teachers, parents, and administrators of Cardinal Ritter Prep have worked tirelessly to make the school a shining example of quality urban education. Without their dedication – and your generous financial support – the Cardinal Ritter experience would be out of reach for so many talented young men and women. Thank you – our generous benefactors for the gifts of time, talent and financial resources you share with this wonderful educational institution. As you know, Cardinal Ritter Prep was built on the pillars of faith in God, educational excellence, and leadership – regardless of race, creed, ethnicity or socio-economic status. Our overarching goal is to help every student reach his or her full potential. Our students are aspiring, inspiring, and empowered for life – and we have the results to prove it. Take a look at the Cardinal Ritter Class of 2013: • Achieved 100% graduation rate • Achieved 100% college acceptance rate • Earned $1.4 million in scholarship offers to colleges and universities These outstanding achievements would not be possible without the unwavering commitment of our local corporate and civic leaders, business community, individual benefactors and friends. While much has been accomplished—we cannot rest. The need has never been greater. Your investment in Cardinal Ritter Prep is like no other because the return pays dividends in the lives of our students, our community, and our workforce for years to come. Cardinal Ritter Prep students are the future leaders of our Church, local business and the St. Louis community. Please continue to invest in the mission and students and do whatever it takes to keep this school a vibrant educational resource for our entire community. Sincerely yours in Christ,

Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson

Inspiring Cardinal Ritter Prep has shaped my life and made me the person I am today. I was lucky to have a very solid foundation provided by both of my parents. However, Cardinal Ritter Prep took that foundation and helped to shape me during my adolescent years. The school community felt like a family. I always knew they believed in me and they let me know I could do and be anything I wanted to be. It was clear that all of my teachers wanted the best for me not just in the classroom – but for life.

Aspiring I can’t think of any other school besides Cardinal Ritter Prep that successfully understands and addresses the needs of black kids from every socio-economic background. My husband and I couldn’t imagine sending our son – Dakarai – to a school he would be expected to just “fit in.” Instead, we know that Cardinal Ritter Prep is laser-focused on teaching black kids what they need to know in order to graduate, succeed in college, and face the world. No other school can say that. God willing, our younger sons will be able to attend Cardinal Ritter Prep as well.

We are proud of Dakarai’s accomplishments as an athlete and honor roll student. But what really warms our heart is to see how well-adjusted, socially responsible, mature and respectful he is. He’s a quiet leader like me. The foundation was set for him at home – but it has been brought to life at Cardinal Ritter Prep.

Empowered for life The focus on academic excellence, faith and leadership is not just “lip-service”… it’s real. So real, that it’s stuck with me over 20 years later. The Cardinal Ritter Prep community understands that anything is possible when a young adult has a positive self-image, confidence and self-awareness. They teach what our ancestors believed when they held their newborn babies to the skies and said - “behold, the only thing greater than yourself.” That’s what Ritter instills in you. And the good news is, it stays with you for life.

AMARA HEARD CLASS OF 2009 Inspiring After watching my two god-children survive and thrive after being born prematurely at one and two pounds, I knew that’s what I wanted to to do with my life. I hope to be amongst the top medical professionals working in the field of Neonatology giving families a chance to bring their once-very-sick children home to lead a full life. When I decided I wanted to attend an accelerated medical program that would combine undergraduate and medical school, my parents, family and the Cardinal Ritter Prep community were right there to encourage me.

Aspiring Cardinal Ritter has inspired me to succeed by helping me realize how much of an opportunity I have to make a difference in this world. I never imagined that I would one day be in medical school, just three years away from being a Doctor. Cardinal Ritter Prep helped me to put all of my talent onto paper so that others can see my potential as well.

I am in my fourth year of the six year B.A./M.D. program at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine (UMKC). I will be graduating in 2016 with my Bachelor’s in Biology and my M.D. My hopes are to begin residency in Pediatrics and then move on to a Neonatology fellowship.

Empowered for life Cardinal Ritter Prep prepared me well for medical school. I already had 16 college credits that I earned in high school which allowed me to lighten my workload for my first few years at UMKC. My advice for students debating whether or not to attend Cardinal Ritter Prep is to consider the following: If you want a school where teachers are dedicated to student success, that offers dual credit classes, and provides multiple outlets for growth—look no further. Cardinal Ritter Prep is a proven institution that has raised a host of Professional Athletes, Dancers, Doctors, and great Leaders in their communities.
