The Class of 2012 marks the third straight graduating class to achieve this remarkable goal!
After working hard at school and their Corporate Work Study jobs for the past four years, these 52 young men and women are prepared to move on to college and continue their preparation for the future.
Our students were accepted to 95 colleges and universities, and our top five already announced their college decisions at our Academic Signing Day.
These seniors will receive approximately $1.5 million in grants and scholarship aid per year from the colleges and universities they will attend, averaging $27,525 per student. The national average of grant and scholarship aid for families of similar income is $7,800 -- Cristo Rey Boston students will receive 3.5 times that!
