Cristo Rey Network

San Miguel belongs to the Cristo Rey Network
The Cristo Rey Network is the only network of high schools in the country that integrate four years of rigorous college preparatory academics with four years of professional work experience through the Corporate Work Study Program.  Comprised of 35 Catholic, colege- and career-preparatory schools that today serve 12,012 students across 22 states and collectively claim 15,505 graduates, the Cristo Rey Network delivers a powerful and innovative approach to inner-city education that equips students from families of limited economic means with the knowledge, character, and skills to transform their lives. The impact is evident: Cristo Rey students are three times more likely to complete a bachelor's degree by age 24, compared to the total U.S. low-income population.
