Cristo Rey Network


Thirty -two Cristo Rey schools in 21 states and the District of Columbia provide a quality, Catholic, college preparatory education to 10,000 young people who live in urban communities with limited educational options.


Member schools utilize a rigorous academic model, supported with effective instruction, to prepare students with a broad range of academic abilities for college success. Cristo Rey schools employ an innovative Corporate Work Study Program that provides students with real world work experiences. Every student works five full days a month to fund the majority of his or her education, gain job experience, grow in self-confidence, and realize the relevance of his or her education. Students work at law firms, banks, hospitals, universities, and other professional Corporate Partners.
