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.

Scholarship honors slain school worker A scholarship endowment has been established at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in memory of Aysha D. Ring, a school employee stabbed and killed by a stranger while standing in line Nov. 22 at a Catonsville liquor store.

It's not unusual to have a one-man play involving a series of monologues. But a one-man play involving 40 characters all chatting with each other?"Boom, I'm someone else," says Rob Nash, the dynamo who's bringing his two short plays "Freshman Year Sucks" and "Sophomore Slump" to the Theatre Project starting Friday. "They carry on conversations. I've got 10 people on stage all talking to each other. It's really fun to perform; it's really fun to watch."Nash's plays follow three misfit friends as they struggle with Jesuit High School and their own identities.

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.

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.

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.

The Archdiocese of Baltimore has a deep and distinguished history of commitment to urban education in Baltimore, dating back to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton's pioneering work more than 200 years ago. Yet, the rich educational tradition of Catholic education faces formidable challenges on a number of fronts as Archbishop Edwin F. O'Brien leads an ambitious renewal of Catholic education through an organizational reset of archdiocesan schools. The Cristo Rey Network, a national consortium of 24 urban Catholic high schools, has been overcoming these challenges through its new model of education for more than a decade.
