All students take a rigorous college preparatory curriculum rooted in the liberal arts. Coursework requires four years of English, Math, and Religion and three years of Science and Social Science. Cristo Rey does not track students.

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.
