Jesuit Father Chris Devron says he has always been interested in start-ups and has an entrepreneurial personality. So it's fitting that he's president of Christ the King Jesuit College Preparatory School, the first all-new Catholic high school on Chicago's West Side in more than 80 years.

Fr. Devron has come full circle in many ways. In 1995 he was a Jesuit novice in Chicago when he witnessed the beginning of the country's first Cristo Rey school, Cristo Rey Jesuit High School, while attending the press conference announcing that the Jesuits were starting the school.

Christ the King, which follows the Cristo Rey work-study model, opened at a temporary site with 120 students in 2008, and its brand new building opened in January 2010.
