Catholic School on West Side a New Option for Students

Posted:

A new high school is broadening the options for kids on Chicago's West Side.

Christ the King Jesuit Preparatory School is located in the Austin neighborhood.

Approximately 99 percent of the students are African-American and come from low income families, so to help pay for the $13,000 yearly tuition, students work at local businesses.

It's the first Catholic school built on the West Side in more than 80 years.
