MINNEAPOLIS (WCOO) – Students from an entire graduating class from one Minneapolis high school are all heading on to continue their education.

All 47 seniors from Cristo Rey Jesuit High School will be attending two- or four-year colleges next year.

Since opening in 2007, Cristo Rey Jesuit High School has had 162 graduates with 70 percent of them enrolled in college after high school.

Their diverse group of students can come from challenging backgrounds, with some living in poor, crime-ridden communities.

Students help pay for their education by working in the community through a corporate work-study program.

The Minneapolis school is part of 26 Cristo Rey schools across the country.
