The Cristo Rey Network empowers students from underserved lower-income communities to develop their minds and 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.”
The Cristo Rey Network strives to become one of the finest educational networks in the country demonstrating measurable impact in the crucial national imperative of launching low-income youth to and through college and into lives of productivity, meaning and consequence.
Cristo Rey Dallas in 2015
On June 17th, 2014 the Cristo Rey Network Board approved our plans to bring Cristo Rey to Dallas. Thanks to the many volunteers on the Cristo Rey Dallas team and a trusting group of supporters, we convincingly demonstrated that we are prepared to bridge the ‘aspiration gap’ through providing a Cristo Rey education to the young people of Dallas.
Our Feasibility Study reported just under $3 million in financial assurances from benefactors, 35 jobs from Corporate Work Study Partners throughout the Dallas business community, and an enthusiastic commitment on the part of Pleasant Grove families for a faith-based, college preparatory environment for their children. Cristo Rey Dallas is no longer a concept. Cristo Rey Dallas is becoming a reality!
