Cristo Rey Jesuit Admissions is here to serve interested families and students in answering questions, providing tours, scheduling school visits and being a resource as you navigate this crucial decision.

Our dedicated admissions team is here to assist you and your family with our application process and we look forward to getting to know you and your family in the next few months. Please take a moment to read through the Admissions Requirements and Process below. 

Requirements: Are you eligible to apply?
