Providence Cristo Rey High School is one of 25 high schools in the Cristo Rey Network
which provides a quality, Catholic, college preparatory education to young people who live in urban communities with limited educational options. Today we are educating 6,500 students, and will soon be reaching more than 10,000 young people, who otherwise would not have access to a quality, college preparatory education. This past year, 100 percent of the schools’ senior class was accepted into college. Our mission is clear: college success for Cristo Rey Network students.
