Message from the Director

Bill Olinger Portrait at Holy Hour 2019Dear future students, families & corporate partners,


Since 2009, ICA Cristo Rey Academy has been making a positive change in the lives of urban youth and their families through our innovative Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP).


Our students in the CWSP acquire valuable work experience and marketable skills, gain exposure to a wide range of career opportunities, and cultivate a strong network of professional relationships that will benefit them in college and beyond. They gain confidence outside of the classroom while learning to envision their own professional futures.


We are tremendously grateful for our over 140 job partners and sponsors for their support of our school and mission. We truly could not do what we do without them. They recognize that by participating in the CWSP they are developing a pipeline of diverse talent, impacting their corporate culture via inclusion and empowerment, and contributing to building an economically vibrant city by investing in education and workforce development.


I invite you to learn more about how ICA Cristo Rey Academy is helping our students realize their potential.
