Pick a Pair of Partners
Last fall, the School of Education began teaming with nearby Pleasant Ridge Montessori Elementary School to develop a professional practices program for Xavier students. The school will showcase Montessori teaching practices and provide professional development for teaching specialties.
Also, the University is partnering with the Jesuit-led Cristo Rey Network of high schools to help Cristo Rey students through scholarship programs, job sponsorships and pre-college summer enrichment programs. The national network of Cristo Rey high schools offer urban students the chance to finance their education through corporate work-study programs in which they gain job experience, self-confidence and an understanding of the relevance of their education.
