About Us

Welcome to Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School!  Cristo Rey Philadelphia is a top quality, independent, Catholic high school for students of all faiths. We serve women and men in grades 9-12 who could not otherwise afford a private education.

100% of our graduates have been admitted to a four year college. 

We have a unique model that connects...

A Cristo Rey student receives:

  • A top-quality, college-preparatory education
  • Experience in professional work settings
  • Affordable access to college
  • Support through college graduation

Every Cristo Rey Philadelphia student works five days per month at a leading Philadelphia area business through the Work-Study Program. The wages they earn at their job fund a substantial portion of the cost of their education.

At Cristo Rey Philadelphia, we believe education is the key to unlocking a person's God-given potential, and all students, regardless of the family's income, should have access to high-quality education.
