The Gabelli School’s Corporate Communications Program.
Since 2018 Cardinal Hayes High School has been participating in a joint initiative with Fordham University: The Gabelli School’s Corporate Communications Program. The program provides Hayesmen with the opportunity to be taught public speaking and presentation skills by Emmy Award winning professor and lecturer Clarence E. Ball III, and to be mentored by Fordham University’s Gabelli School students, as they develop presentations for an end of year showcase in which they compete against other high schools in the Bronx. In this brief video, the Fordham Dean of the Gabelli School of Business Donna Rapacciolo, PhD, and Cardinal Hayes's Mr. Rui Guimarães highlight the program’s growth since 2018 and its lasting impact on our Hayesmen. Cardinal Hayes currently has 10 students enrolled in the program.
The Mission of Cardinal Hayes High School, a community based in Roman Catholic values, is to inspire diverse young men of the New York City metropolitan area to become lifelong learners and responsible citizens. We will accomplish this goal by encouraging students' spiritual and intellectual growth through a rigorous college preparatory program of academics, extra-curricular activities, and personal discipline.
