Cristo Rey's dual-language program, which promotes proficiency in both Spanish and English, is a cornerstone of the academic program. Upon graduation from Cristo Rey, students are proficient in both Spanish and English languages.
All of this takes place within our distinct dual language program, which promotes proficiency in both Spanish and English. The program requires that 30% of classes be taught entirely in Spanish; the remaining 70% of coursework is taught in English.
All students are required to take AP Spanish Literature and Culture and AP English Literature. In 2017, 85% of senior test-takers passed the AP Spanish Literature Exam with a score of 3 or better; 92% of juniors passed the AP Spanish Language Exam. Students can also elect to take AP United States Government and Politics.
