Becoming a Partner



Cristo Rey High Schools are unique in that they offer an affordable, college preparatory education combined with a work/study program to youth in strictly low-income communities.The Cristo Rey model is already proven and sustainable. There are 32 Cristo Rey High Schools throughout the country, in cities like Baltimore, Atlanta, Chicago and New York to name a few, serving over 10,000 students. Our goal is to open a Cristo Rey Richmond High School in the Fall of 2018.

These schools work, with 100% college acceptance and 90% college enrollment, but they also literally work. Cristo Rey students go to work one day a week at our Corporate Partnership companies in order to pay for the majority of their tuition. In order to provide the underserved students in Richmond with this type of opportunity, we need your help. We are hoping you will consider becoming one of our Corporate Partners. Our committee would love the opportunity to meet with you and your company about helping us make Cristo Rey Richmond a reality here in our city.
