Cardinal Ritter College Prep High School

If there's one thing the locals have to know about you, it's where you went to high school. Although asking about one's high school is frequently used as a polite way of sizing you up, you can't always tell a book by its cover. At Cardinal Ritter, 100 percent of its graduates are accepted by one or more colleges each year. In 1996, 59 scholarships were offered to 57 graduating seniors, totaling more than $300,000. This Catholic coed high school serves a predominantly African-American student population from the city, county and Illinois and has an enrollment just over 250. All students are enrolled in a leadership program with classes in the freshman and sophomore years. The school is focused on preparing students for leadership in a multiethnic society and identifying the most appropriate college experience for each student.
