School’s Mission Statement…
A Catholic high school exclusively serving families of limited economic means, Cristo Rey Boston educates young people 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 focuses on providing a strong education in small and diverse classes. In the early years students focus the base curriculum of English, Math, Science, History, Religion and Spanish. Students in the upper classes can choose from various electives and are required to take at least one Advanced Placement course. The AP classes offered include AP Calculus, AP Drawing, AP U.S. Government and Politics, AP Spanish Language, AP Biology and AP English Language Composition. Last year, 100% the school’s graduates were accepted to four-year colleges.

The school offers a unique Corporate Work Study Program where four qualifying students together are able to hold a full-time job.  Tasks performed are mostly clerical work such as filing, copying, faxing, delivering inter-office mail, data-entry, reception, and general "go for" duties. The program allows the school to keep tuitions low and at the same time give students an opportunity to get an early introduction into the job-world.

Additionally the school offers the  Widening Horizons Program, where a variety of unique activities allow students to explore all that the city has to offer.
