Message from Anna Winter, Director of Development, Communications and Community Affairs:
With an average annual income of $36,000, our students’ families are challenged 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 a great education for 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 family contribution fee 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.
Please visit the links below to learn more about the many ways you can support our students and get involved at the school.
