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


Cristo Rey Jesuit High School opened in August 2007 and had its first graduation ceremony 2011 with the first students who came into the school. It is part of the Cristo Rey Network of high schools, the original being Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Chicago. There were plenty of problems that persisted among every new year. The First students to ever have been chosen were essentially the guinea pigs but they were formed into young adults with bright futures thanks to Cristo Rey. Cristo Rey has a no-tolerance towards violence, profanity and egregious behavior.[1]

Book about the Cristo Rey Model[edit]

In January 2008, Loyola Press will release a book titled More than A Dream: How One School's Vision is Changing the World. 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.
