School News: $25,000 Grant from Charles H. Dater Foundation Supports Counseling Program at DePaul Cristo Rey
DePaul Cristo Rey’s counseling program recognizes that many factors lead to school success so counselors assist students with any personal, academic and social challenges that can get in the way of their learning. In addition to the counselors on DPCR’s staff, the school partners with Beech Acres Parenting Center which provides licensed social workers and a mental health therapist on-site at DPCR to support students. Both DPCR and Beech Acres counselors provide individual counseling and academic support, facilitate support groups and family activities, and make referrals to community resources, if needed.
The Charles H. Dater Foundation is committed to the children of Greater Cincinnati providing support to nonprofit organizations that benefit young people in the areas of arts/culture, education, healthcare, social services and other community areas.
DePaul Cristo Rey, sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, offers a nationally recognized, dual-focus education model to students whose families need significant financial assistance to afford a private, college preparatory program. This education model, not available at any other local high school, partners challenging college preparatory academics with a Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP). It is one of 35 Catholic high schools in the nationwide Cristo Rey Network® which serves 11,500 young people.
