DePaul Cristo Rey High School


Established 2011

Mission DePaul Cristo Rey High School, sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, transforms students into high school and college graduates by helping them realize their full potential. Our Catholic, college-prep curriculum and innovative work-study program combine to form young women and men of integrity, faith, tenacity, and purpose.


Serving Our Community DePaul Cristo Rey is a college-prep, Catholic high school serving only families with financial need. DPCR prepares promising, low-income students from all over Greater Cincinnati to graduate from high school and college, helping them to transform into young professionals. DPCR offers an innovative Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP) in which all students work five days a month in 125 local companies, earning part of their education costs while developing as young professionals. DPCR is part of the national Cristo Rey Network® of 32 schools. Cristo Rey graduates are enrolling, persisting in, and completing college at two-and-a-half times the rate of their low-income peers. DPCR opened in 2011 and has graduated two classes—both achieved 100 percent college acceptance. It is sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati
