Michael Morrisey has served as Executive Director of CEF since 2007.
Congratulations to the CEF Class of 2014!
We’re very proud of the academic achievements of our CEF students! Consider this:
- 99.9% of our students graduate from 8th grade and attend high school
- 98.7% graduate from high school
- 93.5% attend college
In comparison, only 70% of their peers attending the nearby public high school graduate, and only 33% of those peers attend college.
Attending a CEF school clearly makes a difference for our students. This impact has been replicated in other cities, where research shows that students living in poverty have much higher levels of academic achievement when they attend Catholic schools.
And, even more importantly, CEF graduates leave their schools with a solid foundation in the beauty, truth and goodness of their faith. National research shows that Catholic school graduates are more likely to practice their faith as adults.
These results are only possible because of your support. Thank you for helping our students achieve their dreams for a Catholic education!
