Rey Dallas College Prep is an independent, Catholic, college preparatory high
school for young men and women of all faiths.
Cristo Rey Dallas nurtures and challenges young women and men to
recognize and realize their full potential as they grow to love God, respect
others, and serve their community.
Located in the Pleasant Grove
neighborhood of Dallas, it serves families from Dallas that could not otherwise afford a private Catholic
education. The school utilizes a longer
school day and year, student-centered instruction, structured academic
assistance, counseling support, and a character formation program to prepare
our students for their future learning and life experiences.
All students enrolled in
the school participate in a unique corporate work-study program through which
they develop important skills and finance the majority of the cost of their
education. The Cristo Rey corporate
work-study program gives students the opportunity to build core skills that
will help them succeed in college and in the modern workplace. Each student works five full days per month at
an entry-level position in a professional work environment. The objective of the work-study program is to
reinforce reading comprehension, mathematics, discipline, persistence, and a
strong work ethic. The money they earn
through their work goes directly to the school to cover a significant portion
of the cost of their education.
school is endorsed by the School Sisters of Notre Dame and accredited by the Texas Catholic Conference Education Department. Cristo Rey
Dallas is the 2nd school in Texas and the 30th
school within the National Cristo Rey Network.
Cristo Rey schools throughout the nation serve more than 9,000 students
in 27 cities and are recognized for their remarkable
record of success in preparing students for success in college and in life.
