Message from the Development Team
With an average annual income of $36,000, our students’ families often struggle to provide for the needs of their households. They want their children to go to college and have a more financially secure future, but their neighborhood schools are often under-resourced and they can’t afford typical tuition-based schools. Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School was established specifically for these families, thanks to the support of generous donors who understand that the future of our region is dependent on how well we educate all of our children.
At Cristo Rey Philadelphia, students earn approximately 60% of the cost of their education through the Work-Study Program. Families are assessed a modest fee of up to $2,500 each year, based on their ability to pay. Students need benefactors to bridge the gap between what they earn, what their families can afford to pay, and the cost of a quality Cristo Rey education.
Cristo Rey Philadelphia Scholarship Program ensures that we can keep the school affordable for our families. Please visit the links below to learn more about the Scholarship Program and the many ways you can help.
