A Cristo Rey Baton Rouge Franciscan High School Graduate
A Cristo Rey Baton Rouge graduate is academically, spiritually, and emotionally prepared to face his challenging college courses with confidence and determination to succeed. He has the skills to be self-sufficient and responsible in college and beyond, unbound by external limitations. He knows he is loved by his Cristo Rey family and has faith that God has a purpose for his life. He treats others with respect and has a well-formed conscience to help him act with integrity. He is rooted in the Cristo Rey community but is ready to stretch his wings and persevere through college and the next journeys in life. He is eager to succeed in school and career so that he can make a positive contribution in service back to his community.
