Welcome to ICA Cristo Rey!
As a college preparatory school, ICA Cristo Rey promotes an academically stimulating and challenging learning environment. The curriculum is designed to place emphasis on the development of those skills and strengths that will be necessary for success in college and beyond. We have high expectations for all students and a support structure in place to ensure that each student can meet these expectations.
The accredited curriculum is designed and taught to prepare students for success in college. The faculty works closely with each student and helps her develop a skill set that focuses on creativity, curiosity, critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, and collaboration.
Using standards that prepare students for college-level work, effective teaching styles that make learning engaging and possible, and instruction that is informed by routine classroom assessments, we strive to maximize the academic achievement of our students.
The ultimate goal of an ICA Cristo Rey education is that all of our students graduate from both high school and college. During their four high school years, our students gain a deep understanding of both themselves and the world around them. They will be prepared to think and act independently and graduate with a sense of responsibility to work for justice in our world and live a life of faith, integrity, and service.
It is the goal of the faculty, administration and staff of ICA Cristo Rey, working closely with the families of our students, to foster in our students by the time of their graduation an understanding of and an ongoing commitment to these core values of our school community -- to be women of prayer, study, community and service.
I invite you to come and visit us anytime and see the magic of ICA Cristo Rey.
Dr. George V. Fornero
