A View From The President's Office

Dear Friends,

Joining Cristo Rey Kansas City as its fourth president is the opportunity of a lifetime for me.

As a career educator and first-generation American, the prospect was irresistible to merge my life’s work to this audacious mission with a bold promise to its students. More than a high school, Cristo Rey is a college preparatory school driven by one academic goal – to equip students with the knowledge, skills and character necessary to graduate with a degree from a college or university.

All the while, Cristo Rey also provides - and requires – students to work to learn. In the workplace, students have access to professional networks and environments to often inaccessible to their communities. This component equips 14- to 18-year-olds with the social and technical acumen to consider and pursue careers they may not have otherwise considered.

Whether you are a student looking to elevate your future, a teacher who wants to make a real difference, or a potential job partner wanting a future-focused commitment to diversity and inclusion, I believe that you will find the same incredible opportunities that drew me to this magnificent campus.

The time is right for me to engage in a mission that inspires us all to, “Look forward to the good that is yet to be.”

Ever forward,
Claudia Meyer
