TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Happening today, Cristo Rey Schools will be getting national attention on CBS This Morning, and there is one of those schools in Tucson.

San Miguel High School is a Cristo Rey School.  The schools are now helping thousands of low-income students prepare for college and their future careers. The college acceptance rate is 100 percent.

The school's founder says there is one catch though,

"We have a saying that if you can afford to come here, then you can't come," said Father John Foley. "We actually do, we turn down kids because they make too much money, their family makes too much money."

The first Cristo Rey School was in Chicago.
