We are a Catholic, coed, dual language high school located in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood. Our mission is to provide a college prep education to students from Spanish speaking families who otherwise couldn't afford a Catholic education. We do this through our unique work study model, the Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP).
Cristo Rey students receive a rigorous college prep education. By taking two classes every year completely in Spanish, we ensure that our students are completely proficient in both English and Spanish upon graduation. As a Jesuit school, Cristo Rey is guided by cura personalis (care for the whole person) which includes mental, physical, and spiritual care. CWSP adds another dimension to cura personalis by providing our students with corporate work experience while still in high school.
As you can see, our school is very unique! We invite you to explore our Admissions pages, as well as the rest of our site, to discover more about the process of applying, tuition, financial aid, visiting us, our requirements for admission and CWSP. We offer several Information sessions throughout the fall and winter and our Shadow Day program runs from October through February.
Please feel free to call or email me if I can be of any assistance to you. I look forward to meeting you soon!
Blanca Gonzalez, Director of Admissions
