Forming Catholic Educators at Providence Cristo Rey

Providence Cristo Rey is proud to have partnerships with two Catholic teaching programs run by the University of Notre Dame, ECHO Teaching Theology and the Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE).

Kelsey Hayes (ECHO - Theology), Andrew Jansen (ACE - History), and Imani Bunn (ACE - Biology) are second year teachers with these programs at Providence Cristo Rey. Read their interview from last year to learn why they chose to begin their careers in Catholic education.

ACE is a two-year program, and teachers are usually placed in schools with low-income or immigrant populations. ACE Fellows earn a Masters in Education from the University of Notre Dame during this two-year period and live in community with other Fellows.
