Cristo Rey Jesuit High School, part of the nationwide Cristo Rey Network®, provides a quality, Catholic, college preparatory education to young people who live in urban communities with limited educational options.
The Cristo Rey Network® is the only network of high schools in the country that integrate four years of rigorous, college-preparatory academics with four years of professional work experience through the Corporate Work Study Program. Comprised of 37 Catholic, college- and career-preparatory schools that today serve over 13,000 students across 24 states and collectively claim 18,035 graduates, the Cristo Rey Network delivers a powerful and innovative approach to inner-city education that equips students from families of limited economic means with the knowledge, character, and skills to transform their lives. The impact is evident: Cristo Rey students are three times more likely to complete a bachelor’s degree by age 24, compared to the total U.S. low-income population.
Our community is one of hard work and dedication. Our students work hard in the classroom and at their jobs. Our faculty and staff are dedicated and committed to our students' success. Our families work hard to contribute what they can to their student's education. Our supervisors, volunteers and benefactors also play a pivotal role in supporting students in and out of the classroom. Together, our students are venturing where many in their families have never been before: high school graduation, college entrance, and college graduation.
