Frequently Asked Questions
What is Detroit Cristo Rey High School?
Detroit Cristo Rey High School is a coed Catholic high school. The school provides high-quality college preparatory education to youth who would not otherwise be able to afford private school education.
What is the Cristo Rey Network?
The Cristo Rey Network® is a national association of high schools that provide quality, Catholic, college preparatory education to urban young people who live in communities with limited educational options. Most of our students qualify for the federal free or reduced lunch program. Member schools utilize a longer school day and year, academic assistance, and counseling to prepare students with a broad range of academic abilities for college. All students at Cristo Rey Network schools participate in a work study program through which they finance the majority of the cost of their education, gain real world job experience, grow in self-confidence, and realize the relevance of their education.
