The Cristo Rey Story: How One School’s Vision Is Changing the World

$22.95

The Cristo Rey Jesuit High School story is one of the more improbable and inspiring educational success stories in decades. Beginning with an audacious dream—to start a new college prep school for the children of Hispanic working poor—the Jesuits in Chicago set to work. But there were many questions that needed to be answered: Would parents support a demanding prep school? Could students overcome deficient academic backgrounds? How would such a school be financed? In More Than a Dream, G. R. Kearney shows how Cristo Rey Jesuit High School became a reality and turned into a resounding success.
