Our Alma Mater Debut

"The Alma Mater is a tribute to our joyful school community, living out our charism," said Vince Prietto, campus ministry director and theology teacher and composer of the Alma Mater. "On a deeper level, the Alma Mater is a prayer that we might more fully awaken to our true identity as the Mystical Body of Christ- taken, blessed, broken, and shared for all the world."

Why Cristo Rey?

Cristo Rey schools use a rigorous academic model, supported by best practices in instruction and assessment, to prepare students with a broad range of intellectual abilities for college and life. Further, Cristo Rey schools employ an innovative Corporate Work Study Program that provides students with real world work experiences. In this unique model, every student works an average of five days a month to fund the majority of the cost of his or her education while gaining job experience, growing in self-confidence, and realizing the relevance of this education. Students work at a variety of employers,  including law firms, banks, hospitals, universities, and with other professional organizations.
