Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School

Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School, a Catholic, college preparatory school for students of all faiths, nurtures, and challenges 550 underserved students to recognize and realize their full potential. To ensure all students are college-ready upon graduation, the Cristo Rey curriculum combines a rigorous, data-driven academic program with paid, professional internships. All students work four days a week in professional jobs with companies across the Philadelphia area, earning 50% of the cost of their education through their own work. In partnership with our students and their families, Cristo Rey Philadelphia’s faculty, staff, job partners, and supporters are everyday heroes working to positively impact the futures of hundreds of young men and women in Philadelphia.
