Academic Overview

What we believe …

This is important.
You can do it.
We won’t give up on you.

At Cristo Rey Richmond, our Academics Team is made up of thinkers, leaders, dreamers and innovators. Each of us is deeply committed to providing a rich and engaging education for our students, and we have a clear vision of the community we want to create together. We strive to prepare every Cristo Rey Richmond student for college and for a successful career upon graduation. In order to do so, we offer a true private school experience. Students are in smaller classes with expert instructors. They receive academic support and enrichment that meet their needs. Our curriculum is focused on skills, processes and analysis as opposed to memorizing discrete pieces of information. We know our students well, and we are able to differentiate the content for their abilities and understanding. 

At the same time, we understand the backgrounds of our students, and we work with them and their families to meet their academic goals. We communicate regularly with our students and families so they are well informed and able to take the lead on their own education. We care about our students as individuals, and we respect their God-given talents both inside and outside of the classroom. This can only happen with the support of our families and community members.

We will be successful when each of our students graduate from Cristo Rey Richmond and select a college well-suited for their interests and needs. Our ultimate goal is to build students with a solid foundation mentally, physically and spiritually so they can reach forward and serve our world in the way they were created to do so.

We welcome you to Cristo Rey Richmond, where we educate our students to be young men and women of faith, purpose, and service.
