STEM In Class

1:1 Technology

Cristo Rey puts a laptop in the hands of every student. Students research, take notes, use apps to virtually mix chemical experiments, study human anatomy, prep for SAT, and create multimedia projects.

Technology is a cornerstone that supports the classroom experience and opens doors to resources in and out of school.

Student workers know that tech isn't just transforming the workplace - it is the workplace. Whether working in-person or remotely, sharp tech skills ensure workplace productivity.

Zero Barriers: Building a STEM Mindset

STEM education embeds the skills needed to succeed in the global economy. In 2014, Cristo Rey launched a STEM initiative to bring project-based, data-driven and hands-on learning into the classroom.

Cristo Rey students enjoy exposure in three distinct STEM pathways:

  • bio-medical sciences - Human Body Systems and Anatomy and Physiology
  • engineering - Introduction to Engineering and FIRST Robotics
  • mathematics - all students take four years of math, including Pre-AP, AP and ACCP curriculum


In the 21st Century economy, America is turning to innovation as the way to ensure a prosperous future. Innovation is tied to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math – the STEM subjects.

Art + Design are necessary to bring to life the advancements possible through science and technology. Cristo Rey promotes Art + Design in the equation — transforming the energy from STEM into STEÂM. Every student takes a Pre-AP art and Pre-AP music class.
