Admissions – Why

Why Cristo Rey Jesuit?

For those of you who are considering enrolling your child in our school, we recognize that making decisions about your child’s education is a top priority. Cristo Rey Jesuit offers an affordable, private, Catholic, high school education and a clear path to college.

Our mission is to inspire and prepare students of limited economic resources to succeed in college and lead their communities as compassionate, committed, and competent men and women for others for the greater glory of God. We accomplish that through an innovative model of education by combining a strong academic foundation, a unique work-study internship opportunity, a wide variety of extracurricular activities, and an emphasis on values that will assist our students on their journey of life both into and after college. 

What makes us Unique

Cristo Rey Jesuit is the ONLY high school in Houston that provides an affordable college prep education coupled with a work-study internship exclusively for economically challenged families.  Our faith-based education is grounded in the Jesuit teachings in which all students are being formed to be Men and Women for Others.


We believe you will be inspired by parents, alumni, and their love for Cristo Rey Jesuit!
