Coronavirus Information

Dear Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit community,

We have constantly monitored the recommendations and notifications of the CDC and our national, state and local governments. Taking all of this into consideration, we have decided that it is in the best interests of our students, faculty, staff, and extended community to continue online learning throughout the remainder of the school year. The school building will remain closed.

 

Our school year will end for all students on Friday, May 15. Grades will continue to be assigned for school work until the last day. There will be no formal exams, but some teachers will assign final projects while other teachers may have final assignments that will substitute for an exam. Final grades will be issued as soon as possible after May 15. Some students may have AP exams after May 15. Faculty will continue to work with those students to be prepared for those exams.

 

Recognition of our seniors and celebrating their accomplishments is a priority for us. We have moved our Graduation ceremony to 10:00am on Friday, July 17.  The Class of 2020 Baccalaureate Mass will be at 4:00pm on Thursday, July 16, followed by the Scholarship and Awards Ceremony at 5:00pm . We are hopeful that we will be able to convene as a community on these days to honor the Class of 2020. As we know, these dates could possibly change but we will do all that we can to celebrate on those dates. The official graduation date of the Class of 2020 will remain May 21, 2020, so that transcripts, etc. may be issued. This date will appear on the diplomas but we plan to celebrate the ceremony on July 17.

Many of our supporters have asked how they can help Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) crisis.  The most immediate need is for our school families who are struggling.  Kindly consider making a gift to the newly established Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit Family Fund so that we may help school families through this crisis.  Providing families with temporary financial relief to meet their rent, grocery, and utility bills will help ensure that our students remain committed to their studies and will provide much-needed security in these unstable times.
