Scholarship Investment Program

Support A Student

Cristo Rey invites you to invest in a student committed to college-readiness and career preparation. To achieve their goals, Cristo Rey students:

  • commit to longer school days and a longer school year
  • embrace a rigorous college-prep curriculum with tutors available for support

  • adhere to high academic and behavior standards

  • work five days a month in a local business, acquiring skills and discovering opportunities

  • earn a portion of the cost of education through corporate work study

  • receive individual guidance and support as they navigate college applications and campus life

Cristo Rey’s admissions process carefully selects students with proven potential and a desire to succeed. Admission is contingent on economic need. Every family makes an annual family financial commitment, averaging $300 per year. No student is ever turned away for inability to pay.

Suggested Scholarship Levels

Cristo Rey Champion - $5000 - $7500
Champions gain insights into a student’s educational journey through several touchpoints during the year and a year-end report. Champion sponsors are honored guests at the scholarship receptions and the Baccalaureate. The option to commit to a two to four-year sponsorship allows the sponsor to follow the development of a student through their time at Cristo Rey.

Puma Supporter - $1500 -$4999
Scholars write cards or notes several times a year updating donors and sharing their progress. Supporters receive invitations to attend the Scholarship Receptions to meet students benefiting from the program and a year-end report.

Scholar Fund Sustaining Donor - $250 - $1499
Benefactors receive several general updates. A scholarship reception presents an opportunity to meet students benefiting from the program.

Scholarships can be funded in ten monthly payments. For more information, please contact Kathleen Conwell by email or call 816.768-6664.
