Eligibility for Admissions

Academic Criteria

Cristo Rey High School Sacramento considers a variety of factors during the application process.

  • Good discipline and attendance record
  • GPA 2.5 or better
  • Openness to religious growth- Our Catholic faith guides our curriculum and practices. While it is not a requirement to be Catholic to attend, students should be open to faith-based education.
  • Motivation and Maturity

 

Financial Aid / Income

Because of our mission, the student's family must be financially eligible. A copy of the most recent tax return (2021 or 2022), W-2, or any state/federal aid documents must be submitted. If you do not file taxes, you must submit an employment letter and any aid documents to show all income earned in the last calendar year. No family is turned away because of financial need but you must qualify under our network guidelines to attend. Please see the graph below in order to determine if you qualify.

 

Contact the Admissions Office if you would like more information or have any questions.
