Cristo Rey High School and Dignity Health Partnership Featured on KCRA 3


Cristo Rey High School Sacramento partners with organizations, such as Dignity Health, to offer students with limited economic resources a rigorous college-preparatory education combined with a unique Work-Study program – working with partner employers throughout the area, students learn professional work skills while generating income to offset the cost of their education.

On Saturday, June 11, 55 Cristo Rey High School seniors received their diplomas at the school’s graduation. The private high school serves families below the poverty level and features a unique work/study program that places each student at a local business to work one day a week during the school year. KCRA 3 interviewed graduating senior Karla Davila, who worked at Mercy General Hospital for two years in the cardiac rehabilitation unit and the information desk. The station also interviewed Candice Sutherland about Karla’s work ethic at Mercy General’s cardiac rehabilitation unit.

Watch!

Mercy Foundation, funded through a Dignity Health operating grant, recently led a successful 18-month philanthropic campaign whereby donors throughout the region contributed $10.8 million, providing a new building for Cristo Rey High School Sacramento, student scholarships, and the expansion of academic and extra-curricular programs.
