I'm Ready!

I’M READY to succeed because Crossroads was ready to help…Are you?

-- Anicet Mundundu, Crossroads Class of 2017

 

Working hard doesn’t always mean you earn a lot – which was the case for Anicet Mundundu’s parents. They knew their son had true academic promise, but they still worried about scraping together the money needed to send him to Central Catholic.  

Even with financial aid, they couldn't close the gap between what they could afford to pay and the remaining tuition balance.  That's where Crossroads stepped in.

But if you ask Anicet, tuition assistance was just the beginning of the help Crossroads provided.

In his sophomore year, Anicet attended daily Crossroads tutoring to help him turn around floundering grades in an honors math course.  

In his junior year, he started lunching daily with his Crossroads counselor and fellow Crossroads scholars to help him stay on track while his mom battled cancer.

This year, Crossroads helped Anicet with the extensive college search and application process
that helped him secure $52,000 in scholarship and financial aid to Syracuse University.

This graduation season, please consider making a donation to Crossroads so that more promising, low-income students like Anicet, can become college-ready through our all-encompassing scholarships. We enable these students from failing school districts to attend one of six Catholic high schools AND receive the year-round personal support they need to succeed.

  • $19 a month pays for a Crossroads tutor for one week.
  • $72 a month pays for a a Crossroads counselor for a week.
  • And any single or recurring donation you can afford helps to make a difference.
