The School That Works

Students fund 41% of the cost of their education through the Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP). 

Cristo Rey Jesuit empowers students to be college-ready and career-prepared with an innovative Corporate Work-Study Program that employs 100% of our students. Our students earn approximately half of the cost of their education through a job-sharing partnership with their classmates to cover a full-time position, Monday through Friday, from late-August to mid-June. Our experiential learning model is unique as we are the only school in Minneapolis/St. Paul that incorporates on-site job experience into its academic curriculum.
