Cristo Rey Jesuit High School is a private, Roman Catholic high school located in the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States. It is in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis.


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. Challenges abounded in the first few years of operation, but the students surmounted all obstacles and became young adults with bright futures. Cristo Rey has a no-tolerance policy towards violence, profanity, and egregious behavior.[1]

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. Authored by G.R. Kearney, a writer and former volunteer teacher at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Chicago, it documents the unlikely development and remarkable success of the Cristo Rey model throughout the United States.[2]
