Holy Cross graduates are again responding to the call to give back by serving in classrooms across America.
The College ranks fifth this year among small colleges and universities (2,999 undergraduates or fewer) contributing the greatest number of graduates to Teach For America with 17 recent Holy Cross alumni joining the program.
Teach For America is the national corps of top recent college graduates and professionals who commit to teach for two years in under-resourced urban and rural areas of the United States, and become leaders in the pursuit of educational equality.
Admission to Teach for America this year was highly selective, with an 11 percent acceptance rate among the record 48,000 individuals who applied. Incoming corps members earned an average GPA of 3.6, and 100 percent have held leadership positions.
