How it works

Nationally, Cristo Rey Network Schools are changing the face of urban education in the United States by partnering with more than 3,200 businesses and serving 12,000+ students. Cristo Rey schools are the only high schools in the country that integrate four years of rigorous college preparatory academics with four years of professional work experience through the CWS.

Each participating organization pays $42,000 a school year for a full-time equivalent position. The funds go directly to the school to offset tuition costs and keep student-family costs affordable.

Four students job-share one full-time position, rotating each day of the week. Students are given hands-on training, and are insured and transported to work by ICA Cristo Rey.
