Work Study Program Feedback Form -- Please Share Your Comments!
We are excited to announce that St. Francis de Sales High School is launching a feasibility study to explore a possible new program! We are presently working with our partners and largest funder, Big Shoulders Fund, and the Archdiocese of Chicago to determine the potential for a Work Study program in the 2019-2020 School year.

Your feedback is critical to the study. Please let us know what you think by completing the questions below (it takes only 3 minutes!).

You can scroll down now to take the survey or if you want, read here for some background information on Work Study programs.

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.
