Our plan also refocuses us on student formation grounded in Catholic educational values. These are supported by the basics of the Cristo Rey model: Academic Excellence, Corporate Work Study and College Success!
The Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP) is the most distinctive feature of the Cristo Rey academic and sustainable business model. The school’s academic program is complemented with one day per week of real-life work experience in many of the finest businesses and organizations in metro Detroit. The CWSP Partners are a vital part of this unique student-centered learning experience. Our CWSP functions as a channel, supplying diverse, qualified workers who are developing the right skills to succeed in college and assume the challenging jobs of the future.
We are proud that each graduating class since the school opened has achieved 100% college acceptance! Our graduates continue graduating from college at two to three times the national average! Our alumni currently study at Yale, Notre Dame, University of Michigan, Michigan State University, Loyola of Chicago and many other outstanding schools.
We are blessed to be part of the Cristo Rey Network, one of 40 schools utilizing one of the most exciting and innovative models of education in the country. We dare to dream big!
