About the Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School Corporate Work Study Program
Through the innovative Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP), Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School students work 5 full days a month at top local businesses. The earnings from this work pay for a large percentage of each student’s tuition costs, giving them access to a rigorous, quality college preparatory education that otherwise would be too expensive.
Cristo Rey students also gain valuable real-world job skills, contacts, and experience through their Work Study jobs, and go on to college in record numbers, in large part because of their early exposure to the working world.
