College Counseling

The main goal of the college counseling program is to empower students to have successful and fulfilling careers by enrolling in a college that is appropriate to their individual strengths and interests.

College Counselors guide students individually on College Planning, the College Application Process, ACT and SAT Testing, Financial Aid, Scholarships, Summer Enrichment Programs and offer after school College Application Workshops.

Each year, Cristo Rey Jesuit High School hosts approximately 75 college admission representatives who provide students with an overview of the colleges they represent as well as general information about the college application process. College representatives will converse with students on a more personalized setting during asesoria or after school. The school will also host a College Fair in the fall.    

100% of our students are accepted to college
