Cristo Rey New York High School (CRNYHS) provides an affordable alternative for urban families who seek a small, Catholic, college-preparatory school for their sons and daughters. Like its 25 sister schools in the Cristo Rey Network, CRNYHS offers students from low-income families a quality education and real-life work experience that are designed to prepare them for college and successful careers thereafter. CRNYHS is a collaborative project of lay men and women, and representatives of three religious congregations: the Sisters of the Holy Child Jesus, the De La Salle Christian Brothers, and the Jesuits.
