In the Corryville neighborhood of Cincinnati there’s a school where the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur have worked since 1877 – Corryville Catholic Elementary.
Where on the surrounding streets less than one if four made it through eighth grade, 100 percent of Corryville Catholic students graduate.
Wherein the school itself 95 percent of families qualify for the school lunch program, students of these same families have since 2000 secured $4,222,402 in scholarships.
It doesn’t just happen. It’s made to happen.
Landis Soto, a Notre Dame Mission Volunteer, is one of three Mission Volunteers assigned to the school through AmeriCorps. It has, to date, with remote learning for some, masks and social distancing for others, not been the typical year.
