Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP)

CWSP provides students with a life-changing opportunity to enter and learn about the professional world. Teams of four students share full-time, entry-level positions at area firms. Each student works five days, or 40 hours per month. Through CWSP, students gain professional skills, interact with successful adult mentors, put their classroom studies to real-world use, and earn the majority of their education costs. Each company directly pays our school for our students' work ($8,700 per student) and this revenue subsidizes operating expenses, allowing our school to maintain the lowest tuition in the city and ensure that every student can attend Cristo Rey Boston, regardless of family income.

Population(s) Served

Most of our 9th graders enter Cristo Rey Boston 1.5 grade levels below the national average in English and Math. In four years, we must help our students rise 5.5 grades, all while they work one day a week at businesses around the city. It's no small task, but our students, staff, and supervisors have proven up to the challenge.We provide our students with individualized academic and personal counseling to help them meet our school's high expectations. Before each student's first day of freshman year, our academic staff has already identified deficiencies in math, grammar, and writing, and our counselors have already met with the student to perform an assessment. Volunteers provide tutoring during study halls and after school to help them reach grade level. Freshmen must gain a 90% or better on three proficiency tests in math, English, and writing in order to pass their 9th grade courses and advance to sophomore year.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Cristo Rey Boston High School seeks to provide pathways to college and career for some of Boston's most under-resourced students with a rigorous college preparatory academic program and experiential work-based learning. We strive to admit students who are academically capable to succeed, who are employable, who are college-bound and who meet the financial profile. 86 percent of our students are eligible for the National Student Lunch Program. We have a track record of success in college acceptance and persistence and we sustain that success each year. Student retention is an ongoing focus as Cristo Rey Boston seeks to reduce the number of students who transfer out of the school, particularly for academic reasons.
