On February 23, 2019, we will all join in “Creating a Buzz” at Magis Night 2019, and raise funds to provide a rigorous, college preparatory, Jesuit Catholic education to students who otherwise would not have this opportunity. Through this educational experience, combined with our unique Corporate Work Study Program, our 431 students and 783 alumni break the cycle of poverty for themselves and their families. While the national college persistence for low-income minority students remains bleak (in the teens), Arrupe Jesuit graduates continue to persist at a rate of 70%. These results are truly creating a buzz in the Denver community and beyond!
Proceeds from Magis Night benefit Arrupe Jesuit High School, bridging the gap between what each family contributes (through the student's work study earnings and family tuition payments) and the total cost of their education. Philanthropic support not only closes this gap but also keeps family-paid tuition at an affordable level despite rising costs.
