Product Overview

The Cristo Rey Jesuit High School story is one of the more improbable and inspiring educational success stories in decades. Beginning with an audacious dream--to start a new college prep school for the children of Hispanic working poor--the Jesuits in Chicago set to work. But there were many questions that needed to be answered: Would parents support a demanding prep school? Could students overcome deficient academic backgrounds? How would such a school be financed? In "More Than a Dream," G. R. Kearney shows how Cristo Rey Jesuit High School became a reality and turned into a resounding success.
"More Than A Dream "has been named a 2008 Finalist of the Eric Hoffer Award.
