When I first learned about Cristo Rey San Diego High School, I was intrigued by the unique business model and noble mission. The more I learned, the more I was inspired by the success of students at other schools in the Cristo Rey Network. Students in San Diego deserve the same opportunity. I now work alongside our dedicated board members, community supporters, job partners, and Cristo Rey staff to ensure Cristo Rey San Diego will be ready to welcome students in 2020.
I believe all students can succeed when given the right opportunity. At Cristo Rey San Diego, we will provide a rigorous, college-preparatory education to underserved students who have limited options. Through our innovative Corporate Work Study Program, every Cristo Rey student will work five days per month at some of San Diego’s top companies. Through this program, they will gain real-world skills while earning roughly half the cost of their education. Students will also learn the importance of giving back to their communities through extracurricular activities throughout San Diego.
Cristo Rey San Diego success depends on the generosity and support of the San Diego community. I invite you to be my guest and visit our campus, and to learn how you can help us provide a better future for our city.
