Cristo Rey Twin Cities is a high school in the Jesuit tradition that combines a rigorous college preparatory curriculum with corporate internships for all students.

Students in Cristo Rey model schools earn approximately 70% of the cost of their education while providing real value to their employers. This renders the schools financially viable, even while enrolling students exclusively from low-income families. A distinct bonus is that the work experience gives these students a whole new vision of themselves, of their education, and of their own potential.

The Cristo Rey Network of schools was established in 2001 when philanthropist B.J. Cassin established the Cassin Educational Initiative Foundation, to “blueprint” and replicate Cristo Rey-model high schools and similarly innovative grade schools.
