Scholarships
ScholarshipScholarship Investment Program
The Scholarship Investment Program of Cristo Rey invites individuals and foundations to invest in students determined to work hard to attain a college education and the opportunities that come with a post-secondary education.

To achieve their goals:

Students will put in longer school days and a longer school year.

  • Students embrace a rigorous college-prep curriculum with tutors and mentors available to assist them.

  • Faculty hold students to a higher academic and behavior standard than their peers.

  • Students work one day a week in a local business, learning new skills and discovering career opportunities beyond their experience.

  • Through corporate work experience, students earn approximately 50% of the cost of their education.

  • Students are guided through the college application process and offered support as they navigate college campus life.

Cristo Rey Kansas City uses a multi-faceted admissions process to carefully select students with proven potential and desire for academic success.  Admission to Cristo Rey is contingent on economic need, with all families asked to pay according to their financial ability. No student is ever turned away for inability to pay.
