Reported by VPM News’ Megan Pauly

This June marks the end of high school for the first graduating class of students at Cristo Rey Richmond, and all 55 seniors have been accepted into college. According to the school’s president, the seniors have received over 500 college acceptances across 25 states — with almost $4 million in merit scholarship offers.

The private Catholic school opened in 2019, incorporating a corporate work-study program into its funding model. Students work one day each week for a corporate partner to earn over half of the school’s $17,000 annual tuition. It’s part of a network of 38 high schools across the country.

The Graffiti House in Brandy Station and Historic Blenheim in Fairfax will be the focus of the work enabled by a $60,000 planning grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, according to a recent release.
