Those visiting, living, or working on the American Tobacco campus each day may have noticed some new, younger tenants. Cristo Rey Research Triangle High School (CRRT), a college and career preparatory school exclusively for economically underserved boys and girls opened its doors to 80 students in August.
Taking over the original American Underground space, the school offers a rigorous academic curriculum with four years of professional work experience and mentorship provided by local corporations and professional services firms through its distinctive Corporate Work Study Program.
Participating companies include many ATC tenants as well as others around Durham: Atticus, Bridge II Sports, Cisco, Cree, the Diaper Bank of NC, Diocese of Raleigh, EY, the Durham Children’s Initiative, ISLA, Jacobs, Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, Lenovo, Microsoft, NC Subway Group, NC State College of Engineering, The Franciscan School, YMCA and ZenBio.
