Cristo Rey New York, an independent, coeducational Catholic high school, seeks to provide a quality education for economically disadvantaged students of all faiths through its core curriculum, dual language instruction and corporate work-study program. This school ministry is a unique collaborative work founded by laity and religious, women and men.
Cristo Rey strives to foster the intellectual potential as well as the cultural heritage of all members of the school community. Our final measurement will be not only "what has the student learned?" but also, "how, where and for whose sake has she or he chosen to invest that learning?" If we succeed, our graduates will become leaders in service, working alongside others to transform our city into a place where all can live with dignity and peace.
