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.
