Message from the Director of Admissions


Dear Prospective Students and Families,


The school year has started and we are glad to be off to a strong start with our students, faculty, and staff! With a record number of applicants this past year, we are excited to know the word is getting out about our mission here in the Atlanta community and are glad to serve our students and families with a quality education, unparalleled Corporate Work Study Program, determined college counseling program with 100% college acceptance of our inaugural graduating class and over $12M in scholarships offered, along with the countless opportunities for clubs, sports, and serving our community!


Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School community! We are thrilled with the response from the Atlanta community and look forward to welcoming a new class of eager freshmen to fill our school for the 2019 - 2020 school year. We encourage you to sign up for our open house, a school tour, or even a shadow day with our student ambassadors and fill out and submit our online application available on October 15th.


Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School is an affordable, safe, co-educational, college preparatory high school in the greater Atlanta metro area.  We are the 28th of 35 Cristo Rey Schools across the United States, and 100% of our graduates are accepted into college. 


In addition to academically preparing for college, each student works five full days per month in an entry-level job at one of our 135 Corporate Job Partners.  This innovative program provides valuable and relevant work experience as well as funding part of their education. Cristo Rey also offers financial aid to qualified students. Every activity at Cristo Rey is done with the intention of forming our students into “men and women for and with others.”


Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit serves Atlanta’s underserved communities of all faiths by opening the door to excellence in higher education, the workforce, community citizenship and Catholic values. We are the school that works in the heart of Atlanta! 


Immunizations/Flu Shots/Drug Test - All students must be current on their immunizations to attend Cristo Rey, we do not accept any religious or other exceptions.  In addition we require parents/guardians to sign and agree that their child might be drug tested either at school or at work or both and that if the company they work for requires flu shots, TB tests or the like, the parent and student will comply.  We recognize that some parents for religious beliefs or health concerns might be reluctant to sign such a statement.  While we respect you religious beliefs and parent rights to make decisions for your child, if you are unwilling to immunize your child, have them drug tested or receive a flu shot, you should NOT apply to Cristo Rey.


Our admissions season begins in October and we look forward to meeting you then.
