Cristo Rey Richmond High School is a Catholic learning community that educates young people of limited economic means to become men and women of faith, purpose, and service. Through a rigorous college preparatory curriculum, integrated with relevant work-study experience, students graduate ready to succeed in college and in life.
Cristo Rey Richmond High School is a part of the largest network of high schools in the country that exclusively serve youth with limited economic means. As a part of the Cristo Rey Network, Cristo Rey schools adhere to a set of Mission Effectiveness Standards to protect the integrity of the model and articulate the shared mission.
Our vision is centered on strengthening the competence, confidence, and aspiration of students from economically-disadvantaged families and empowering them to build fulfilling lives that advance the common good.
By providing students an extraordinary college preparatory education and a unique four year, integrated corporate work-study experience, we seek to transform Richmond one student at a time and break the cycle of poverty.
