Christ The King Jesuit College Preparatory School

Rising Leaders Council

Rising Leaders Council


The Rising Leaders Council (RLC) is made up of Chicago-area professionals whose mission is to support the students and faculty of Christ the King by advancing the work of the Board of Directors to make a safe, faith-based, college preparatory education a possibility for youth on Chicago’s West Side. RLC members leverage their professional networks to increase awareness of our school and to invite the professional community to engage in and support our mission and purpose.

RLC members have also led or made significant contributions to CTK Career Day, College Day, Family Service Day, as well as many other school sponsored events. As vital champions to our mission, RLC members increase awareness in the business community for our unique Corporate Work Study Program. 

The RLC signature event is RISE UP held in June with inspired cocktails, food and fun to benefit the students of Christ the King Jesuit College Prep. Click here for more information on RISE UP
