Cristo Rey Boston High School

Why Give?


Cristo Rey Boston offers full-tuition scholarships to all admitted students, reflecting the school's commitment to identifying and removing the barriers that exist in the way of our student's academic and professional success.

We ask you to match our student's energy, commitment, and drive by making a gift to our school. When you give, you support aspirational students in achieving their goals. They want to succeed, and with your help, they will become young men and women who embody our core values of Dignity, Perseverance, Growth, and Generosity.

Our funding model is two pronged. Student's participation in the Corporate Work Study Program currently provides 50% of our operating revenue. The other half is supported via grants, event sponsorships and individual benefactors. The Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP) is an independent component of the Cristo Rey educational model, and functions as an employment agency within a Cristo Rey School. Partners pay a fee to CWSP, allowing a student to contribute via their own efforts, to the overall cost of their education. 

When you give, you are contributing to a school that is getting outstanding results:

  • 100% of our graduating classes have been accepted to college since 2010.
  • Our graduates go to leading institutions such as Georgetown, Boston College, Holy Cross, Brown University, Wellesley College, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Bates, Skidmore, Fairfield University, Emmanuel College, Northeastern, Regis, UMASS, and more.
  • More than 90% of our graduates are enrolled in college one year after graduation, well above the national average.
  • 63% of students persist through college, more than three times the national average for students in similar socio-economic groups.
  • A small community and total focus on individual students enable our freshmen to grow an average of one-and-a-half to two grade levels in math and English by the end of freshman year. 
  • By senior year, every student takes an Advanced Placement class, allowing them to prepare for university courses and earn college credit while in high school.
