Message from the Director of College Counseling
Dear current and future Cristo Rey Philadelphia students,
The path to college is both exciting and very overwhelming. Which college is right for you? How far from home do you want to go? How will you find an affordable option? What should your major be? Here at Cristo Rey Philadelphia we work closely with you and your family to answer these questions and many more!
It all starts with weekly college counseling classes. You will spend time with a college counselor learning about the many college options available to you, crafting your college essay and applying for scholarships. At CRPHS we offer several opportunities to visit college campuses (for free!) and experience what life after high school may be like. You will prepare yourself for the ACT, learn how to ace college interviews and even have the opportunity to earn college acceptances on the spot during our Instant Decision Days. In addition to all of this, our staff will walk you and your family through every step of the financial aid application process. We are so incredibly proud of our students and proud to be known as the school with 100% acceptance to 4-year colleges and universities!
Most importantly, we work closely with our college partners to ensure that you will have access to special scholarships and programs (only available to Cristo Rey Philadelphia students) that will help support you on your path to the ultimate goal – a college degree! Through our alumni program we will continue to stay in touch and support you throughout your time in college as you work towards your dream.
We are so excited to work with you and your family during this exciting time!
Jared Epler, MS. Ed
