Teacher to Work Day

Cristo Rey teachers lived a day in the life of their students during our Teacher to Work Day event last month.

Cristo Rey teachers lived a day in the life of their students during our Teacher to Work Day event last month.

Spring Break College Visits

Over spring break, eight Cristo Rey seniors made a three day fly-in visit to the College of St. Benedict (CSB) and St. John’s University (SJU) in Minnesota.

Over spring break, eight Cristo Rey seniors made a three day fly-in visit to the College of St. Benedict (CSB) and St. John’s University (SJU) in Minnesota. The cost of the trip, outside of a modest registration fee, is covered by CSB/SJU for any Cristo Rey student who is accepted at the school. On this visit, students experienced a day of academics as well a weekend of college life away from home. We currently have five CR alums attending CSB/SJU.
