Cristo Rey Brooklyn is a Catholic high school that educates young people of limited economic means to become men and women of faith, purpose, and service. By offering a rigorous curriculum, a unique work-study experience, and the support of an inclusive school community, we prepare our students to succeed in college and beyond with the values essential to a fulfilling life.
The school’s vision is to be considered among the best high schools in New York City as measured by academic achievement, graduation rate, college acceptance, and post-graduate success.
The core mission of Cristo Rey Brooklyn is fundamentally one of social justice; as the Cristo Rey Network’s Mission Statement articulates, “The Cristo Rey Network empowers thousands of students from underserved, low-income communities to develop their minds and hearts to become lifelong contributors to society. By providing students an extraordinary college preparatory education and a unique four-year, integrated corporate work study experience, we seek to transform urban America one student at a time.” In other words, Cristo Rey Brooklyn, along with its 31 sister schools, has dedicated itself to educational and lifelong opportunity and equality. CRB is also driven by the audacious but attainable goal to not only change the lives of its students, but to alter the trajectory of entire families; with a college degree and professional experience, students will be better positioned for financial stability and greater economic opportunity.
