Celebrating 24 years of Cristo Rey’s unique educational model


¡VIVA! The one, magical night each year when the entire Cristo Rey family – alumni, benefactors, Corporate Work Study partners, students, and friends – join in celebrating our mission. Together, we make a Catholic, college preparatory education and professional work experience possible for students from Spanish speaking families with limited financial means. While ¡VIVA! looked different this year, our virtual culminating celebration on June 18 captured the same ¡VIVA! magic – raising nearly $380,000 in support of Cristo Rey's Annual Fund, with performances by Mariachi Monumental de México and our students, as well as a live dance party with alum DJ Mayhem (Martin Arrendondo '12).

In case you missed it on June 18, you can view the celebration video here:
