For the first half of their Spring Break, our juniors traveled near and far for Cristo Rey’s annual college trip! This is the first big step our juniors take in the college process, and for many students, it’s their first time on a college campus. The junior class split up into four groups and joined the College Counseling Team to board their buses and start their journey. This year, the girls traveled to Massachusetts and Rhode Island, visiting schools like Boston College, Providence College, Marist, Brown, and Babson, while the boys headed upstate to see schools including Hobart and William Smith, University of Rochester, Syracuse, Cornell, and Le Moyne. In total, the Class of 2021 saw 32 colleges in three days. They certainly deserved the remainder of their break when they finally returned home!
CRNYHS in the time of COVID-19
Cristo Rey New York has tried to ride the waves of changes that have swamped the city. Our students completed the second trimester marking period and began spring break on March 6, so they were safely home slightly before the rapid increase in COVID-19 cases in New York. Rather than have students and teachers return to school as planned, we pivoted to online learning. We suspended students’ Corporate Work Study Program jobs, just as many clients were having their regular employees work from home. For everyone, students and teachers alike, the transition to online learning has meant establishing new routines, making space to work at home, learning how to participate in video conferences, and demonstrating new levels of responsibility and initiative. We are off to a good start. Thank you to our students, parents, CWSP partners, trustees, friends and donors for helping us navigate these unprecedented times! We will continue to lean on you for support and to keep you updated as best we can.
