Employment in and by the Church is substantially different from secular employment. Church employees must conduct themselves in a manner that is consistent with and supportive of the mission and purpose of the Church. Their behavior must not violate the faith, morals or laws of the Church or the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, such that it can embarrass the Church or give rise to scandal.
Institution DescriptionRisen Christ Catholic School is a bilingual, multicultural and financially accessible school of excellence, educating children in mind, body, and spirit to live and lead in the example of Jesus Christ. The school was formed in 1993 as the consolidation of five area parish schools to preserve and strengthen Catholic education for new generations of children in the heart of south Minneapolis.
Risen Christ is locally and nationally recognized as a high-performing school with a history of serving low-income students of color and achieving extraordinary outcomes. Risen Christ serves more children in poverty and more Latinos than any other Catholic school in the Archdiocese and is funded primarily through the generosity of foundations, parishes, individuals and businesses who believe that Catholic education should be accessible to all children who desire it.
We are proud to be the only Catholic School in Minnesota providing a quality dual language education to a diverse community of learners. The dual immersion program began in 2014 and next year will serve students in grades K-4. In dual immersion, students receive fifty percent of their instruction in Spanish and fifty percent in English every day. A grade will be added each year until the entire school is using the two-way immersion model in 2023.
