Aderant Renews Partnership with Cristo Rey Integrated Education Programaderantuser
ATLANTA – November 22, 2016 – Aderant, a global software company headquartered in Atlanta, has renewed its commitment to their partnership with Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School. The partnership, which commenced in August 2015, is a corporate work-study program geared specifically for students from lower-income families in order to help overcome financial and social obstacles to educational and professional opportunities.

Cristo Rey Atlanta is one of a network of 32 college preparatory schools across the country dedicated to providing students a unique four-year, integrated work-study experience that prepares them for success in life and in their communities. Funded by corporate donations, tuition is covered for students who attend traditional classes four days a week, and work as interns in a corporate setting one day a week.
The work-study program mirrors the traditional school year, meaning four Cristio Rey students commit to working at Aderant one day a week from August 2016 through May 2017. The students consist of two high school freshman, one sophomore and one junior.
“Cristo Rey Atlanta is thrilled with the partnership we have with Aderant,” said William Garrett, Cristo Rey Atlanta President. “Aderant’s CEO, Chris Giglio, personally called after hearing a NPR piece on the school in order to sign on for a team of students. Ever since then Aderant has been treating our students as an important part of their workforce, providing meaningful work and expecting high quality performance from our students. This partnership with Aderant not only offsets about sixty percent of the cost of education, it also provides our students with experience and learning that simply can’t be replicated in the classroom. Aderant is truly changing the lives of our students.”
“We had an outstanding experience last year with Cristo Rey, so we didn’t hesitate to renew the relationship this year,” said Giglio. “The Cristo Rey approach to education has proven successful with one hundred percent of its graduates being accepted into college. That is a mission we at Aderant are proud to get behind and support.”
