Principal’s Message 2016-17
We say that Cristo Rey High School is “The School That Works” because it provides students with the support they need to grow into well-educated, successful, compassionate, faith-filled adults.
As we enter our second decade, we continue to provide our students with a curriculum that offers challenge with college preparatory courses - including honors and Advanced Placement - and support from expert teachers, staff, tutors, and counselors.
We are proud to be a member of the Cristo Rey Network, this year marking 21 years since the opening of the first school in Chicago. This system of 32 high schools across the country - including San Francisco, San Jose, and Los Angeles - provides a unique education that combines rigorous college prep instruction with a work-study program that gives students valuable experience in business, law, medicine, marketing, government, environment, and other areas. When Cristo Rey students graduate, they have over 1200 hours of professional work experience that prepares them for success in college and career.
And as a Catholic school sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy and the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), Cristo Rey Sacramento helps students deepen their faith and understand the call they have to serve others.
If you have not visited Cristo Rey Sacramento, I encourage you to contact our Enrollment Office to arrange a time to meet our students, faculty, and staff and witness first-hand the joy and achievement that takes place here everyday.
