Coming - Fall 2023


About Us

Cristo Rey Orange County High School is a college preparatory, Catholic school open to students of all faiths. As part of the Cristo Rey Network of high schools, we provide a new opportunity to Orange County students from economically disadvantaged communities through a unique partnership of educators, businesses, and universities. A Cristo Rey student receives a top quality education and professional work experience, at an affordable cost, through our Innovative Work Study Program.

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.
