2. Motivation and Maturity – Studying AND working as a high school student is not easy. Students should show the maturity and motivation to be able to handle both aspects of our curriculum

3. Openness to religious values – Our Catholic faith guides our curriculum and practices. While it is not  a requirement to be Catholic to attend, students should be open to a faith-based education.

4. 70% average or above grades – Previous two years grades will be reviewed for admissions purposes. Grades are a good indicator of your success in our program.

5. Cristo Rey Richmond has limited ability to offer services for students with IEPs and other special needs. However, all applicant files are reviewed on a case by case by the Admissions Committee to determine if we have the capacity to serve the student as they deserve.
