Cristo Rey Jesuit teams compete in the Texas Charter School Academic & Athletic League (TCSAAL). We offer 10 different sports during 3 seasons and have more than 50% students involved in at least one of our teams.
The Cristo Rey Jesuit Athletic program provides opportunities for student-athletes to learn and grow in competitive high school sports, whether or not they come to high school with athletic experience. Through preparation, participation, and physical competition, student-athletes learn the value of teamwork, develop healthy living habits, and grow to appreciate the effort it takes to succeed on and off the field.
We believe that athletics is an extension of the classroom and student-athletes integrate the Cristo Rey Jesuit values into their athletic pursuits. Students and parents are expected to conduct themselves in a positive manner, displaying good sportsmanship at all times, both as participants and as spectators at all athletic events.
In the Fall of 2009, the first Cristo Rey Jesuit Student Council wrote a proclamation stating that the school mascot would be a Lion. The Lion was shortly thereafter named “Ledo” in remembrance of famous Jesuit Wlodimir Ledochowski. We created a mascot that portrayed the characteristics of courage, love, heart and honor.
