About Cristo Rey Jesuit High School

Cristo Rey Jesuit (CRJ) Milwaukee is part of the growing national Cristo Rey Network (CRN) of 40 high schools that feature a unique integration of college-prep academics, professional experience, and spiritual formation with a focus on students of limited financial means.  At CRJ’s $33 million campus, just across the Menomonee Valley from Marquette University in the heart of Clarke Square, Cristo Rey serves a diverse student body of approximately 450 young men and women and 350 alumni.  Students attend class four days per week and work in a professional setting one day per week through our innovative Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP).  It is the collective mission of our staff to provide our students with a Jesuit education that ensures they gain admission to – and ultimately graduate from – college.  In pursuit of that goal, Cristo Rey staff collaborate, reflect, and practice to maximize their impact each day.
