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.

Benefactors receive several general updates. A scholarship reception presents an opportunity to meet students benefiting from the program.
