Cristo Rey Network
The Cristo Rey Network is a thriving association of high schools that utilize an innovative work-study program to provide affordable, Catholic education exclusively to families that have limited financial resources. Advanced is a proud supporter, providing mentorship as well as financial support. Putting our expertise to use, we developed a brown bag lunch series with one of the schools to teach the students about resume writing, appropriate interview attire, best practices for completing job applications, and more.
