Eligibility for Admission
Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School offers a top-quality college prep education to students from families with limited finanical resources across Philadelphia, PA and Camden, NJ.
The annual cost of education for one student is approximately $12,000. Of this total, approximately 60% is earned by the student through their participation in the Work-Study Program. The money earned through their Work-Study job and funds raised from benefactors permit the school to ask for a maximum family contribution of $2,500 per student per year. However, most families will pay considerably less. The family contribution is assessed based on need.
No student is denied admission due to an inability to pay.
- Student must be a rising 9th or 10th grader. We do not accept 11th & 12th grade transfer students.
- All incoming 9th grade students entering the 2018-2019 school year must be 14 years old by September 1, 2018, as a requirement of the Work-Study Program.
- Student must take admissions placement test. Dates available here.
- The student's family must be financially eligible.
Because our mission is to provide a private school option to students who otherwise could not afford a private school education, the family of the student must be considered as having limited financial resources. Families that earn $60,000 or more annually should contact the admissions office prior to applying to determine eligibility.
