As the largest network of high schools in the United States whose enrollment is limited to low-income youth, the Cristo Rey Network® delivers a distinctive approach to inner-city education that equips students with the knowledge, character, and skills to transform their lives. From freshman year, Cristo Rey® schools establish a culture of high-expectations by blending rigorous academics, four years of professional work experience, Catholic moral values, and support for students to and through college.

The Cristo Rey Network national office ensures the quality and vitality of the movement by:

  • Scaling and standardizing effective practices across all schools in academics, college enrollment and completion, and the Corporate Work Study Program
  • Facilitating new school growth through development of a national growth plan and support for new schools
  • Supporting mission accountability through school evaluations and data analysis
  • Stewarding national branding, visibility, and fundraising
