Cristo Rey Jesuit High School is a private, Roman Catholic high school located in the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States, in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis. It was founded by the Society of Jesus in 2007 and is one of over 36 high schools in the country which follow the Cristo Rey work-study model of education for students from low-income families.

Background[edit]

Cristo Rey Jesuit High School opened in August 2007 and saw its first students graduate in 2011. It is part of the Cristo Rey Network of high schools, the original being Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Chicago.[1] In October 2017 the school had 117 corporate partners, who were ready to employ students through the Cristo Rey Work Study Program.[2]

Spirituals[edit]

Students make day-long retreats in the first three years and in their senior year they make a 3-day Kairos retreat.[3] Three days each week the entire school participates in the 5-minute daily examen practice,[4] which grew out of Ignatian retreats.[5]

All students perform 20 hours of voluntary service each of the four years.[6]
