Providence Cristo Rey offers a strong academic program that includes all the requirements for a Core 40 diploma plus a variety of electives. In addition to the regular courses, Providence Cristo Rey provides extra support for students who may enter our school needing some extra help in reading or math. We also offer some honors and Advanced Placement (AP) courses for students who want to challenge themselves to reach higher academic goals. Typically, students in honors classes proceed at an accelerated rate and are held to more rigorous standards of achievement. All Providence Cristo Rey graduates earn either a Core 40 or Core 40 with Academic Honors diploma.
