The Cristo Rey Difference

We are a Catholic, coed, high school located in Santa Ana, CA. Our mission is to provide a college preparatory education to students who otherwise couldn't afford a Catholic education. We do this through a very generous scholarship program and  our innovative Corporate Work Study program.

Cristo Rey Orange County provides students access to a top-quality Catholic education, four years of professional work experience, and a proven path to college. Cristo Rey students work five days a month at top Orange County companies. This hands-on experience brings classroom education together with real world experience, giving students an educational experience unlike any other. We are the ONLY school in the area offering this opportunity.
