Celebrating 24 years of Cristo Rey’s unique educational model - now through June 18

¡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.

Each year, ¡VIVA! fills our funding gap – raising $600,000 for the Annual Fund. While the ongoing public health crisis has reshaped our daily lives and while ¡VIVA! may look different this year, the need and the mission remain the same. Join us now and through June 18, and be inspired by our students and families. ¡VIVA Cristo Rey!
