School Notes

  • A Cristo Rey student receives: a top quality, college preparatory education, experience in professional work settings, affordable access to college, and support through college graduation.
  • Through the Work-Study Program, every student works five days per month in leading Philadelphia professional organizations, offsetting the majority of the cost of their education.
  • We believe education is the key to unlocking a person's God-given potential, and all students, regardless of the family's income, should have access to high-quality education.
