Cristo Rey New York High School

About Cristo Rey New York High School

The Sisters of the Holy Child Jesus partnered with the Christian Brothers, the Jesuits, and lay women and men to open Cristo Rey New York High School (CRNY) in 2004. CRNY provides Catholic college preparatory education to young women and men whose families live in underserved areas. Students work in teams of four in entry-level jobs in local businesses during the school week. Their salaries offset a major part of their tuition.

Volunteers Needed

Cristo Rey needs volunteers to tutor individual students during the school day, to help catalog books in its new library, and to assist with sports after school.
