Our CEO, former Lt. Governor Thomas P. O’Neill III, serves on the board of Cristo Rey Boston (CRB) High School. CRB is located in Dorchester, MA dedicated to exclusively serving families of limited economic means. For the seventh straight year, 100% of the graduating seniors have received at least one college acceptance letter, with most students receive multiple acceptances. They have about 92% of the graduating class enter college immediately in the fall after their high school graduation and 60% of the classs graduates from college within six years of entering. That 60% mark is higher than the national average of 54.8% for all students from all demographic areas, which is quite remarkable when one thinks about the obstacles they overcome for a brighter future.
