At Providence Cristo Rey, we believe in introducing prospective students to endless opportunities - Colleges and Careers. That's why we offer VIP tours at our Corporate Work Study Partner sites and on local college campuses. Future Wolves can immerse themselves in the campus experience and the corporate culture - including such careers as healthcare, technology, and business. Today, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices provided a behind-the-scenes tour for future Wolves. Last week Butler University (Official Page) offered students a close-up look at college life. These tours fill up quickly. To learn more visit the Admissions/Admissions Visist/VIP tab on our website. We will also host a Fall Open House from 3-5 p.m. on Nov. 6.

As part of our unique Corporate Work Study program, prospective students learn early about the importance of career readiness. Middle School students are invited to join our admission team on VIP tours of our Corporate Partner sites. This week we offered two tours: At NextGear Captial Middle School students heard from Providence Cristo Rey junior Hollis Coe who works at the company. At the Indiana Blood Center students from Andrew J. Brown Academy got a behind-the-scenes look at the lab. One student, who said science is his favorite subject, learned about how he could make a career in the field he enjoys. When he saw the lab coat he said: "That's for me." He also met the blood center's president & CEO, Dr. Charlie Miraglia, MD. Equally important, is helping our students focus on potential careers. Today we welcomed industry speakers - Flanner & Buchanan's Jan Smith, Vice President of Funeral Operations and Emanuel C. Smith Jr. Managing Director Lavenia and Summer Home for Funerals and UIndy's Carrie Burchfield, Adjunct Faculty member who spoke about careers in Mortuary Science and Teaching. Both are Corporate Work Study Partners with Providence Cristo Rey.
Today Providence Cristo Rey received an award from Ivy Tech Community College recognizing the “Largest Growth High School Based on Dual Credit.” During the 2015-16 school year, our program grew more than any other in the state and we increased the number of Ivy Tech courses from one to seven. During the 2015-16 academic year, Providence Cristo Rey students completed 49 dual credit courses. The award was presented by Ivy Tech President Dr. Sue Ellspermann (far right). In addition to Ivy Tech courses, Providence Cristo Rey students can earn dual credit through Marian University, Indiana University, IUPUI, and the University of Indianapolis. Those courses include: Web Application Design, English Composition, Western Worl Literature & Composition, Social Problems, and Intro to politics. See a complete list of our dual credits below.
