BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) -- An outpouring of support is flowing in for a school in Birmingham that has found tremendous educational success.
Financial struggles are plaguing Holy Family Cristo Rey High School in Ensley.
Parents have been calling the school inquiring about a possible transfer with the help of the Alabama Accountability Act.
Holy Family is unique in that students at the school work an internship one day a week to help pay for their education.
The boys at the school wear ties every day, and the girls dress as if they are going to work.
Principal Sidney Moore says the college prep school may be the last hope for many inner city kids to be successful in life.
"All of our students are accepted into college," Moore said. "This past year we had 30 graduates and those 30 graduates are somewhere in the neighborhood of $2.4 million in scholarships, which is not bad for 30 students."
The school plans to launch a capital campaign.
