Supporting the Future
Sadlier is proud of our partnership with Cristo Rey New York High School (CRNYHS). As part of their Corporate Work Study Program, CRNYHS students work in Sadlier’s New York office, gaining real-world, corporate experience. But they aren’t the only ones who benefit. Sadlier employees are supported by energetic young adults who bring a fresh perspective to our work.
Part of the Cristo Rey Network, CRNYHS provides an affordable alternative for urban families who seek a small, Catholic, college-preparatory school for their children. It combines quality education and real-life work experience that are designed to prepare students for college and successful careers. Sadlier is a founding corporate partner, participating in the Corporate Work Study Program since the school’s inception in 2004.
William H. Sadlier, Inc. is a proud partner of National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) and the National Conference for Catechetical Leadership (NCCL) on a national level and a supporter of local Catholic Schools through contributions to the Inner-City Scholarship Fund which provides tuition assistance to underprivileged students attending Catholic schools in Archdiocese of New York. The Inner-City exists to ensure that the gift of an excellent Catholic school education continues to be a viable option for students of all faiths. Learn more.
