About Our School
Message From the President
Cristo Rey Boston High School has become one of the most popular and successful schools in Greater Boston. Why?
We are the school that works. We are a member of the Cristo Rey Network, a thriving association of 25 high schools that utilize an innovative work-study program to provide affordable, Catholic education to more than 7,000 students nationwide. We exclusively serve families with limited financial resources. Every one of our students works five full days per month at more than 100 companies in Greater Boston to pay for most of the cost of their education and to gain professional experience. By working, students learn about the corporate world, connect academic coursework to the work they do at their corporate placements, and gain skills that will serve them beyond high school.
We believe in our students. Our mission is to educate young people to become men and women of faith, purpose and service. We provide our students with the opportunity to develop faith in God and to understand that there is a purpose to their life. It is our responsibility to help our students discover their unique gifts and talents. We believe we are called to contribute to a better world, to serve others, and to be on the side of those who are left behind. Everything we do is based on these values.
Our students succeed. We offer a rigorous, supportive, college preparatory curriculum that prepares every one of our students to enter and graduate from college. 100% of our graduates for the past three years have been accepted to four-year colleges and universities. We offer double blocks of core courses, tutoring and remediation for students who need it, Advanced Placement classes during senior year, an intense college counseling program that helps students select the right college, and a wide range of extracurricular and athletic programs.
We have plans to grow to more than 400 students over the next three years. Whether you're a prospective student, work study partner, or an old friend, come visit us to be inspired and to see why Cristo Rey Boston High School has become one of the most exciting places to learn in Greater Boston. We are located at 100 Savin Hill Avenue, across the street from the Savin Hill T-Stop on the MBTA Red Line. We welcome you to drop in and say hello at any time.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Jeff Thielman, Cristo Rey Boston High School President.
