Social & Emotional Support

As a Jesuit college preparatory school, we support the development and flourishing of the “cura personalis” or whole person. To that end, we provide a variety of services to help students thrive socially, emotionally, and physically. 

Counseling department

The Counseling Department at Cristo Rey Jesuit is committed to assisting all students and their families in meeting the demands of high school and working through the various barriers that may arise throughout the school year.

Typical issues that high school students seek support on include: anxiety, depression, loneliness, identity concerns, eating concerns, stress management, relationships, family stress, family financial strain, loss, transitions, personal growth and development, college and transition preparations, spirituality, and difficulties with academic performance.We operate under an open referral system in which a student can request to see a counselor at any time. Students can refer peers, and parents and any faculty/staff member may also submit a referral for students to receive counseling. Counselors provide individual & group counseling, conflict resolution, and family counseling.

Nurse’s Station

Cristo Rey Jesuit employs a full time-nurse to meet the needs of our students. Students may request a pass to visit the nurse’s office for student illnesses and injuries.


if you are concerned for yourself, a friend, or a classmate, please complete the CRJ Counseling Referral Form. A Cristo Rey Jesuit counselor  will respond appropriately with the student and/or family as needed and indicated.
