The Work Study model was pioneered 20 years ago in Chicago by the Cristo Rey Jesuit High School. In a program like this, students are put into job-sharing teams where they work once every four days at a local business from 8:30-4:30pm. The students’ academic schedules are modified so that four students share one full-time entry-level job without missing academic class time – the students attend the same number of instructional hours as in a traditional school setting.
A Work Study Program provides students tremendous access to opportunity – not only the opportunity to afford a private/Catholic high school that prepares them to attend and succeed at great universities, but also the opportunity to gain valuable life and work experiences in a professional setting. Students take ownership of a quality, college prep education while developing real world job skills. These experiences have been shown to help student achievement and colleges have shown great interest in this experience as a differentiator in admissions decisions.
