Detroit Cristo Rey High School provides a Catholic, college prep education to low income students. Consistent with the long tradition of Catholic education, students of all faiths are welcome.Now in our twelfth year, our alumni graduate from college at 3 times the national average.
The average income of the families we support is under $35,000. About 90% of our students qualify for free or reduced lunch.
One of the unique aspects of our school is that all students work a job 5 days a month at one of over 80 corporate partners. The proceeds of the jobs help pay for over 50% of the cost of educating our students.
