Cristo Rey High School Sacramento is a private, Roman Catholic high school in Sacramento, California, situated on the corner of Jackson and Florin-Perkins Roads. It is in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sacramento.

Background[edit]

Cristo Rey opened in Sacramento in August, 2006. It is part of the Cristo Rey Network of high schools, the original being Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Chicago.[2] The school is co-sponsored by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), the Sisters of Mercy, and the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur.

First graduation class[edit]

On Thursday, June 3, 2010, Cristo Rey HS had its first graduation class. The ceremony was held at St. Ignatius Loyola Church.[3] The class consisted of 53 students, all of whom were accepted into colleges and universities.[4]

Book about the Cristo Rey Model[edit]

In January 2008, Loyola Press released a book entitled More than A Dream: How One School's Vision is Changing the World.[5] The book, authored by G.R. Kearney, a writer and former volunteer teacher at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Chicago, documents the unlikely development of the Cristo Rey model and its remarkable success throughout the United States.
