Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School is an independent, Catholic, college preparatory school for students of all faiths whose families cannot afford the tuition charged by other schools.
The Cristo Rey model works financially because students earn 60% of the cost of their education through the Work-Study Program. Families make a modest tuition contribution up to $2,500 per year, based on their ability to pay. The balance comes from generous benefactors like you. Scholarship support ensures that we can keep Cristo Rey Philadelphia affordable for our all of our families.
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. You can become a Cristo Rey Philadelphia Scholarship Partnerby pledging $20,000 payable over four years to partner with one Cristo Rey Philadelphia student from freshman year through graduation, or $5,000 for a one-year student scholarship.
