Our Vision

Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit is an apostolate of the Society of Jesus and one of 62 Jesuit high schools across the United States. Since 1548, Jesuit schools have formed students to become people of conscience, competence, and compassion. The hallmark of Jesuit education is academic and personal excellence. The aim of Jesuit schools is the formation of men and women for others.


Students will graduate from Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit prepared to embark upon a journey of personal accountability, service to others and lifelong learning.


Our school utilizes a longer school day and year, structured academic assistance, and counseling support to prepare students for college. All students enrolled in the school participate in a unique Corporate Work Study Program through which they develop important skills and finance the majority of the cost of their education. The Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit Corporate Work Study Program provides students the opportunity to build core skills that will help them succeed in college and the modern workplace.


Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School is based on a proven model of success and is a member of a network of 37 Cristo Rey schools around the country that empower young students to achieve their full potential. Cristo Rey schools offer a unique curriculum that combines academics, extra­curricular programs, and professional work experience to prepare students for success in college and beyond. This model works, with 100% of graduates being accepted into college.
