Summer Enrichment Programming prepares our students and their families for the necessity of leaving home in search of post-secondary educational opportunities, while providing enrichment opportunities to help them compete for admission and resources at more‐selective colleges. This past summer, approximately one in five students attended these programs around the city, country, and world – 15 to international programs. To make this possible, generous Cristo Rey supporters provided 18 students with almost $10,000 in supplemental financial aid, allowing them to take advantage of $84,778 in outside scholarships and program fee waivers.

Support us in our inaugural Cristo Rey Giving Day on Monday, September 30, and help us close this year's funding gap, unmet by student work study jobs and our families' contributions. To celebrate our founding year, this 1996-minute period will be a time for the Cristo Rey community to come together and show their Cristero pride. By joining us as a donor on September 30, you'll help us reach our goal of $10K and 100 donors. More details to come!
Our 'eyes' are on senior Jaime B.'s impressive summer research project! Jaime took part in the Chicago EYES (Educators and Youth Enjoy Science) on Cancer program at the University of Chicago. Jamie worked full-time with a dedicated mentor this summer, and will continue his research next summer. On August 8, Jaime presented his findings from his research project at the Summer Cancer Research Symposium. Congrats to Jaime on a job well done!
