The Cristo Rey Jesuit High School / Colin Powell Center in Minneapolis is part of a network of 13 schools that began in Chicago in 1996. An ambitious effort targeting economically disadvantaged, inner-city youth, this learning/living center is built from the ground up and serves approximately 500 students.
Our involvement with the private, college-preparatory high school included a donation of building materials and more than 200 hours worth of project management and design expertise.
The new 160,000 square foot state-of-the-art education and recreational facility, which opened on October 4, 2007, is part of a larger effort that combines education with real-world job experience to help economically disadvantaged teens prepare for a successful future.
Recognizing the importance of environment to learning, Cristo Rey depended on Atmosphere Commercial Interior to provide products, design and current trends in productive interiors to complete their project.
