Our Mission Continues

Dear Friends,

This fall, we began our 21st academic year at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School, enrolling the largest number of students in the school’s history. I am also proud to say that for the fourth consecutive year, we have not raised tuition. This year’s senior class will pay the same tuition rate they paid as freshman. Does that surprise you? Why haven’t we raised tuition?

The answer is simple: our mission. Cristo Rey was founded purposely and specifically to serve families who otherwise would never consider sending their children to a private school because it was financially unattainable. We believe that keeping tuition low allows our families to send their children to a safe, high quality, college preparatory school. With 89% of our students already receiving some sort of financial assistance or scholarship aid, the majority of our families already can’t afford the current tuition of $2,950 a year. By keeping tuition low and affordable, we are fulfilling our mission. While costs continue to rise, the income of our families remains at or below poverty level. This is why it is more important than ever to have your continued support.

I invite you to visit us this year and see how we are fulfilling our mission. Our doors are always open to you.
