ATLANTA (AP) - A network of Catholic Schools for low-income students has announced plans to open a high school campus in west Atlanta.
Cristo Rey Network - which operates 25 schools across the country - plans to open a school in Atlanta's west side in fall of 2014.
The school's President-elect Bill Garret tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution students would be required to work five days per month in entry-level jobs to help finance their tuition, which is about $1,000 a year at other schools in the network.
The newspaper reports enrollment is limited to low income students - below $35,000 for a family of four. The school plans to enroll 125 freshmen and eventually expand to a student body of 500.
