MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Cristo Rey Jesuit High School Milwaukee has released a rendering for its upcoming new school location at 1818 West National Ave. in Milwaukee.
The new campus is located in the Clarke Square neighborhood, hosting one of metro Milwaukee’s fastest-growing school-aged populations, and is more strategically and centrally located to better serve students and families.
The new location will allow Cristo Rey Jesuit to educate additional children of families with limited financial means (Cristo Rey Jesuit students’ average household income is $32,500).
The school projects that the earliest occupancy would be during the 2020 school year.
“Cristo Rey is a great addition to our near south side and it will serve as a great education option for young people in the neighborhood,” said Mayor Tom Barrett. “The school provides learning opportunities both in the classroom and in a variety of work place settings to prepare students to be the future leaders of Milwaukee.”
The projected cost of the new school is between $20 million and $25 million. The revenue sources for the project include campaign funds, new market tax credits, long-term financing and reserves from ongoing operations going forward. Cristo Rey Jesuit has launched a community fundraising campaign, called “Ignite. Invest. Impact.” For more information, click here.
