Cristo Rey Jesuit High in Chicago Alum Named Founding Principal for Cristo Rey Miami

May 29, 2019 — Cristo Rey Jesuit High School (Chicago) alumnus Cesar Muñoz ('07) has been named as the founding principal for Cristo Rey Miami High School. Muñoz is the first Cristo Rey alum to serve as a Cristo Rey principal in the growing 35 college- and career-preparatory high schools that make up the Cristo Rey Network. Cristo Rey Miami is on target to open in summer 2020.

Cesar was the first of three Muñoz children to graduate from Cristo Rey Jesuit High School (Ana ('14) and Carlos ('15)).

"I'm so proud of Cesar and his wife Jackie (Hernandez) Muñoz ('09), who both embody the values and spirit of Cristo Rey," said Antonio Ortiz, president of Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Chicago. “Clearly, credit starts with his parents who instilled this dedication to Catholic education since their elementary school days. Cesar’s acceptance of this incredible opportunity at Cristo Rey Miami represents a deep commitment to our work and proves that Cristo Rey graduates are owning the next phase of our mission. This is truly a grace-filled moment for our school.”

Muñoz currently serves as the dean of students at Aspira Haugan Middle School and as the math instructional lead for the network of Aspira middle and high schools in Chicago. He holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago in sociology and Latin American Latino Studies and a master's degree in teaching from the Academy for Urban School Leadership at National Louis University. Muñoz officially begins his term at Cristo Rey Miami in August 2019. [Source: Cristo Rey Jesuit High School
