Christ the King Jesuit College Prep
Christ the King Jesuit College Prep is a Catholic Jesuit, independent, coeducational, college preparatory school for students from families on Chicago’s west side who would otherwise not have access to a private secondary school education.
Sponsored by the Chicago Province Jesuits, Christ the King offers students a strong academic and spiritual foundation integrated with a Corporate Work Study Program in a safe, disciplined, faith-based and caring environment.
The school's program is designed to foster each student's intellectual and spiritual growth built on a deepening relationship with Jesus Christ. Christ the King seeks to inspire and prepare its students to become creative leaders; “men and women for others” who are committed to work for justice in the Church, in the civic community, and in their chosen profession.
Having opened in August 2008 with 120 students, Christ the King is now accepting students for its next freshman class. The school will ultimately serve 600 students. Christ the King Jesuit College Preparatory School is a Catholic Jesuit secondary school (grades 9-12) using the Cristo Rey model to serve young men and women from the Austin neighborhood and surrounding communities of Chicago’s west side.
