Sponsor a Student Scholarship

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest." - Benjamin Franklin Education is a potent and well-documented pathway to success that impacts the individual, the family, and the community. At most colleges, students from low- and high- income families have very similar earnings in adulthood despite large differences in their backgrounds. Nationally, children from the poorest families are substantially less likely than their peers from wealthier backgrounds to reach the top of the income distribution. However, comparing two students at the same college, this difference almost entirely disappears – a finding that is especially true at highly selective colleges.*

Cristo Rey Jesuit exclusively serves students who desire a college prep education but could not otherwise afford the costs of a private school tuition. This is made possible by a unique blend of fundraising, tuition, and our innovative corporate work-study program.
