Why Cristo Rey?

We are a Catholic, coed, high school located in the Orlando area - opening fall 2025. Our mission is to provide a college prep education to students who otherwise couldn't afford a Catholic education. We do this through our unique work study model, the Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP).

Cristo Rey students receive a rigorous college prep education, while working one day a week at a corporate work study job. This hands-on experience brings classroom education together with real world experience, giving students a unique educational experience, unlike any other.
