Cristo Rey Boston High School
Cristo Rey Boston is a Catholic high school that educates young people of limited economic means to become men and women of faith, purpose and service. By offering a rigorous curriculum, a unique work-study experience, and the support of an inclusive school community, we prepare our students to succeed in college and beyond with the values essential to a fulfilling life.
Cristo Rey Boston High School is a member of the national Cristo Rey Network (www.cristoreynetwork.org), an association of 30 Catholic schools serving 9,500 students across the country. The mission of the Cristo Rey schools is to prepare low-income students to enter and graduate college through a rigorous curriculum and a unique work-study program in which all students work at entry-level jobs in local businesses. This year, Cristo Rey students are working in more than 135 companies in Greater Boston, from State Street to Boston Medical Center.
Cristo Rey Boston serves 375 students in the 2015-2016, of which 90% are Latino and African American. The average family income is $27,238, and 85% of students qualify for the federal free/reduced lunch program. Cristo Rey's free/reduced lunch population is among the highest of any school, public or private, in the city of Boston, and serving the city's lowest income students is central to the school's mission. Cristo Rey Boston is growing its enrollment to 400 students over the next two years.
