Make It Through

Serving low-income communities doesn’t just mean helping students enroll—it means making sure they can graduate.

“This isn’t just the door in: It’s the way through,” says Vice President for Enrollment Management Mike Sexton—who works hard to make sure students who enroll can thrive. “We of course want to gauge how well we’re serving low-income students by admitting them, but it’s about who you graduate.”

Part of that effort is the creation of five full-ride, four-year scholarships for alumni of the Cristo Rey Network—a collection of Jesuit high schools throughout the country that exclusively serve low-income students, giving them experience working alongside CEOs and nonprofit leaders.

The scholarships cover tuition, room and board, and other expenses related to higher education.

The goal? That money won’t be a barrier to graduation.
