School Notes

  • Cristo Rey St. Viator is a unique college preparatory high school that provides a safe, affordable, Catholic education to students from families who would not otherwise have access to a private education. Cristo Rey St. Viator provides a distinctive approach to education and equips students with the knowledge and skills to transform their lives through rigorous academics, four years of work experience, and support to and through college. CRSV operates as both a school and temporary employment agency. All students work one full day each week in a real, entry-level job through the Corporate Work Study Program to earn most of their own education. Corporate Partners employ a team of students who share one job and provide coverage Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm during the school year. The Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP) not only builds competence, confidence, and aspiration in CRSV students, it also responds to workforce development challenges most companies face by developing candidates with the social and technical skills to perform the jobs of the future.

We gave our son the choice to stay in a charter school or to attend a Catholic school. We are proud of his decision to attend Cristo Rey St. Viator because of the mission and vision that the network stands behinds. Although we are not Catholic, we believe so strongly in the values and teachings that this school delivers. They welcome all faiths and do not discriminate. We will always support our son and his journey to be a fine young man, and we will support this school that will help make him who he is.

My grandson loves going to school, he enjoys his teachers, feels challenged with the curriculum and has made great friends in a short time. I am impressed with the program and the effort put into the safety of the students during these trying times. I believe I made the best decision for my grandson`s education and I highly recommend Cristo Rey.

My son attended catholic school since Kindergarten. We wanted to continue his catholic education throughout the high school as well. He is the one who picked CRSV , especially because of their wonderful work program. We all totally love the school and appreciate all the teachers. My son is more than happy he can attend in person as online learning didn`t work for him, but You have a choice here. What`s more important- even though it`s been a huge transition my son loves his new school and it`s all that matters. Cristo Rei gives him an opportunity to learn in safe and friendly environment. Couldn`t be happier!!!Mom of the Freshman
