The Cristo Rey Jesuit Corporate Work Study Program is a new, innovative model of education that gives students a Jesuit, college-preparatory education while earning work-experience in blue-ribbon companies across the Houston area.
Four students rotate through the week to fill the position full-time. Each student has an assigned day on which he or she works. On Friday, the four students rotate to share the fifth day of the week. In each four-week span, each student will have one week in which he or she works two days. Academic structures are scheduled so that students never miss class.
Students are employees of the Corporate Work Study Program, not the Sponsors. Sponsors pay a flat fee to the Corporate Work Study Program for one full-time Corporate Work Study Team. The Corporate Work Study Program handles all payroll, W-4, I-9, Worker's Compensation, FICA and FUTA paperwork, as well as all routine employer issues. The Corporate Work Study Program is separately incorporated, functioning as an employment agency within Cristo Rey Jesuit College Preparatory.
