About the Corporate Work Study Program

The Corporate Work Study Program (a separately incorporated entity) operates like a temporary employment agency within Cristo Rey schools and employs every student five full days a month in an entry-level, professional job all four years of high school. Students earn a majority of their education cost while gaining real-world work experience that strengthens their cognitive and non-cognitive skill development, catalyzes confidence and aspiration, and prepares them for success in college and careers.

Cristo Rey Comes Full Circle:

A student becomes an architect after her Corporate Work Study Program, returned to her firm, and now mentors current Cristo Rey student workers.
