Cristo Rey Columbus High School

Program Description

Cristo Rey Columbus High School is one of 32 schools in the national Cristo Rey Network. We serve underrepresented students across the country and we incorporate a Professional Work Study Program (PWSP) into the students' school schedule. The PWSP funds directly assist the tuition costs for the students and teaches students about professionalism in the workplace. We are a Catholic, private, college preparatory school and we strive to graduate 100% of our students from high school with at least one college acceptance. The 2016-2017 school year is our first year with a graduating class and we are excited to see where they matriculate. We have a four-year college counseling program and one of its goals is to build and promote a college-going culture for all students.
