Cristo Rey Jesuit High School was established to provide working Latino families of Chicago's Southwest Side with the opportunity to afford a Jesuit, college preparatory education. Started in 1998, the program was founded in response to the extensive needs and limited resources of Cristo Rey. It has grown to be a vital part of the school's efforts in delivering quality, affordable education to our students. Our volunteers demonstrate a commitment to social justice, spiritual and personal growth, and intentional community living - all tenets of our program. Our volunteers give of their gifts and talents to serve the students and families of Cristo Rey in many roles, which could include: teaching, campus ministry, college counseling, coaching, corporate work study, volunteer coordinator, to name a few. They live in intentional community within the neighborhood and benefit from lives committed to reflection and action.

Mission Statement

Our Mission Cristo Rey Jesuit High School provides a Catholic, college preparatory education and professional work experience to students from Spanish-speaking families with limited financial means. Our Vision The reason for the school's existence is to advance the human and intellectual capacities, as well as the religious and cultural heritage, of the immigrant families it serves. Through its Corporate Work Study Program, faith-based college preparatory education, and Spanish heritage language curriculum, the goal is to prepare students to succeed in college and to assume leadership roles in the civic, religious, business, and cultural life of our city and nation. As committed alumni of a Jesuit high school, graduates become men and women for others who are open to growth, religious, intellectually competent, loving, committed to justice, and work experienced.

Description

Cristo Rey Jesuit High School was founded by the Midwest Jesuits in 1996 to serve the immigrant Latino community of Pilsen and Little Village on the near Southwest side of Chicago. Our school pioneered the Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP) model for inner-city education that has inspired a national network of over 37 schools serving low-income communities across the country.

Now in its 25th year, Cristo Rey Jesuit High School remains committed to serving families with limited financial means, who seek out a Jesuit, Catholic and college preparatory education for their children. Serving 562 students from 29 zip codes across Chicago’s Southwest Side, Cristo Rey creates unique opportunities for a community that still experiences great need.

To make Cristo Rey affordable and sustainable, founding members conceptualized the Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP) model for inner-city education. The CWSP enables all of our students to earn approximately 70% of their annual tuition by working one day a week at an entry-level position for a corporation or nonprofit agency across the Chicago area. By collaborating with more than 140 Chicago businesses, this program allows students to develop high-level social and professional skills, plus four years of job experience, before entering college.
