As president of Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Baltimore, Jesuit Father John W. Swope has seen many achievements from students. This week’s Catholic Review features a story about the school’s first seniors getting college acceptance letters. It’s a monumental moment.

“We’re on the threshold of our first graduating class, and we are well on our way to having 100 percent of our seniors accepted to college,” he said. “Ninety percent will be the first in their families to go to college. This is the single most important outcome for our school.”
