Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School is an independent, Catholic, college preparatory high school in the Tioga neighborhood of Philadelphia for students of all faiths who could not otherwise afford a private education. The school is a new model of private high school that opened in 2012 because of a unique partnership of local educators, businesses and universities. Every Cristo Rey student works five days per month at a leading Philadelphia area business, earning real wages that offset the cost of their education. Cristo Rey graduates have a 100% acceptance rate to a four-year college! Learn more here: cristoreyphiladelphia.org
