Mission Statement


Cristo Rey High School seeks to provide a quality education for economically disadvantaged high school students of all faiths through its core curriculum, dual language instruction and corporate work-study program. This school ministry is endorsed by the American Province of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, the Long Island New England Province of the Brothers of the Christian Schools and the New York Province of the Society of Jesus. Cristo Rey, in a spirit of collaboration with these groups, strives to foster the human and intellectual potential, as well as the cultural heritage, of all members of the school community. Our final measurement will be not only “what has the student learned?” but also, “how, where and for whose sake has she or he chosen to invest that learning?” If we succeed, our graduates will become leaders in service, working alongside others to transform our city into a place where all can live with dignity and peace.

Description


Cristo Rey New York High School provides an affordable alternative for urban families who seek a Catholic, college preparatory school for their children. We are a member of the Cristo Rey Network. We share the Network's motto, "Transforming Urban America, One Student at a Time," and we follow its Mission Effectiveness Standards. The Cristo Rey Network of schools was founded in 2001 when school leaders met to replicate the unique model of Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Chicago, IL. Since 2001, leaders of the Cristo Rey schools have been meeting regularly to share ideas and best practices. In 2003, the Cristo Rey Network® was formally organized as a 501(c) (3) organization. B.J. and Bebe Cassin were the first philanthropists to promote the scaling up of the Cristo Rey model. Today, dozens of foundations, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and individual donors throughout the country have contributed to the efforts of the Cristo Rey Network®.
