The plan for a new Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Baltimore's Station North Arts District sparked optimism among community leaders last year. But their hope turned to disappointment with the news that the school is slated to open a few miles away, at a site in Upper Fells Point. In September, the city awarded development rights to Cristo Rey so it could renovate an old city school building at 1634 Guilford Ave.

I was delighted to read that Cristo Rey Jesuit High School has changed its ban on dreadlocks ("No dread: Private school cuts hair policy," Dec. 2). Our school, Sisters Academy of Baltimore, sends many students to this excellent high school. There, our girls have sharpened their minds, increased their employment potential and paved their paths toward college. It is my understanding that the dreadlocks ban was in place because of the school's internship program, and I can imagine that when Cristo Rey first opened its doors in 2007, there were many businesses that would have been reluctant to include a teenager with dreadlocks on their staffs.

A new Jesuit-run high school will offer a college-prep curriculum for low-income Baltimore students and steer them to part-time jobs in professional offices to help them earn money to cover tuition costs. The Maryland Province Jesuits say Cristo Rey High School will offer a glimmer of hope in a city where census figures show that 26.2 percent of the children live in poverty and the median household income is $30,078. Yesterday, Maryland Province Jesuits, corporate sponsors and city officials met at Loyola College to unveil plans for the school, which would open in 2007 at 1634 Guilford Ave. in an old city elementary school that was shuttered in 2001 because of declining enrollment.

When a representative from Cristo Rey Jesuit High School visited Danielle Cook's class, the eighth-grader thought she fit the criteria for the rigorous college preparatory high school in Baltimore. She has been a straight-A student since preschool, is at the top of her class at Afya Public Charter School and participates in a half-dozen extracurricular activities. Then the representative described the school's dress code and its hairstyle restrictions, and Danielle realized something other than academics could keep her from attending: the 75 dreadlocks framing her face.

The Maryland Jesuits are considering opening a high school in Baltimore that would, for the first time, provide low-income students a Catholic college prep education combined with professional experience through a corporate work-study program. The Rev. William J. Watters, S.J., who is chairman of a committee conducting a feasibility study, said students would earn tuition money by working part time in professional offices ranging from law and investment firms to banks and hospitals. The purpose is to expose some of Baltimore's most disadvantaged students to a work environment that could help propel them to college and white-collar careers.

City officials have formally awarded development rights to a vacant elementary school in the Station North arts district to a new coed Jesuit high school for low-income students based on a work-study model that will combine rigorous academic programs with entry-level positions in business and professional offices. An announcement of the award to the Cristo Rey Jesuit High School is to be made at 2:30 p.m. today at the vacant Mildred Monroe Elementary School in the 1600 block of Guilford Ave. Plans for the school were originally announced in February, but officials said at the time that no formal award had been made.

A man was in critical condition Friday after an officer shot him in the chest during an alleged burglary in the 400 block of S. Chester St. in Upper Fells Point, Baltimore police said. The shooting occurred about 1 p.m. at a rowhouse near the Cristo Rey Jesuit High School, which went on immediate lockdown. "Officers were responding to the call when they confronted possibly two suspects," police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. "During that confrontation, one of the officers discharged her service weapon, striking the suspect in the chest.

A grainy, out-of-focus picture from a surveillance camera was about all Baltimore County police had to go on yesterday as they searched for a killer who, without warning, slashed the throat of a 24-year-old woman as she stood in line in a Catonsville liquor store. Saturday's attack on Aysha Dawn Ring, who had planned on a career in the Navy, reverberated yesterday at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Baltimore, where she had worked full time since June 2007, managing logistics for students in corporate internship programs.

THE DECISION by Maryland Jesuits to explore opening a new high school in Baltimore to serve low-income students got us thinking about what makes a Jesuit high school Jesuit -- and why anyone should care. What stands out is this Catholic order's directive to contribute "vitally" to the "total and integral liberation of the human person leading to participation in the life of God." Isn't that what education does best -- free us? In the best of ways, through knowledge. The Jesuits take it a step further.

Mitch Cross led all scorers with 11 points as host Loyola beat Cristo Rey Jesuit, 56-28, Tuesday. The Dons (3-0), shot just 9-for-30 from the foul line; the Hornets were 6-for-25. The Dons have outscored opponents 159-113 during their three-game winning streak to start the season. Old Mill 84, Howard 62: Eric Savage had a game-high 20 points and Gavin Salmond had 19 to lead the host Patriots (1-0) past the Lions (0-1). Old Mill led by nine after the first quarter.

Ginell McLean, hair pinned up in a bun, a black-and-gray jacket over a button-down shirt, looks like everyone else working in cubicles at the Towson firm that employs her. The only dead giveaways that she's a 17-year-old junior in high school are the backpack on her desk and the SpongeBob SquarePants watch on her wrist. McLean's five-day-a-month job at insurance brokerage RCM&D isn't after school. It's an integral part of school. Like all 246 students at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Baltimore, she's working to pay for a big piece of the cost of her education — and to get hands-on professional experience.
