Gain Real-World Work Experience

Does working at one of Milwaukee’s best companies while attending high school appeal to you? Part of Cristo Rey Jesuit’s academic program involves having all students work one day a week to learn about different jobs in the community and gain valuable on-the-job experience.

We have the only student work program of its kind in Wisconsin. All students have the opportunity to work and learn skills that will serve them well in college and their careers and spend one day every week working for businesses throughout greater Milwaukee. Our students graduate with a solid education and a better idea of the type of work they want to do in the future.
