Cristo Rey Jesuit College Preparatory High School opened its doors in August 2009 with a freshman class of over 80 young men and women. Sponsored by the New Orleans Province Jesuits, Cristo Rey Jesuit offers a rigorous college prep education available to students from low-income families in the Houston area. A unique Corporate Work-Study Program places students in Houston businesses and nonprofits where they earn up to 70 percent of the cost of their education. Cristo Rey Jesuit College Preparatory belongs to the national Cristo Rey Network of schools.
Cristo Rey Jesuit, a Catholic high school, combines personal responsibility, academic rigor, and a corporate work-study program to empower students of all faiths from economically challenged families to reach their full potential.
Cristo Rey Jesuit graduates will be academically strong, spiritually grounded, and work-experienced men and women who graduate from college and become leaders committed to a lifelong pursuit of learning, faith, and justice.
