Cristo Rey Network

Cristo Rey® Boston High School is a proud member of the Cristo Rey Network®. We embrace the Corporate Work Study Model and follow its Mission Effectiveness Standards.

The Cristo Rey movement began in Chicago in 1996 when the Jesuits opened Cristo Rey Jesuit High School on the city’s southwest side. The Jesuits found a way for students with limited means to pay for private, Catholic education – every student had to work an entry-level job to earn a significant portion of the cost of his or her education.

The original school in Chicago became so successful that others around the country sought to replicate it. Today, the Cristo Rey Network is comprised of 30 high schools that provide a quality, Catholic, college preparatory education to more than 9,800 urban young people who live in low-income, urban communities with limited educational options. Most students of Cristo Rey Network schools qualify for the federal free or reduced lunch program. Member schools utilize a longer school day and year, academic assistance, and counseling to prepare students with a broad range of academic abilities for college.

B.J. and Bebe Cassin were the first philanthropists to promote the scaling up of the Cristo Rey Network. Today, dozens of foundations, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and individual donors throughout the country have contributed to the efforts of the Cristo Rey Network.
