Careers at Cristo Rey

Cristo Rey Columbus High School Open Positions

Cristo Rey Columbus High School is part of the national Cristo Rey Network. Cristo Rey Columbus is a Catholic, college-preparatory high school for students of all faiths from families of limited financial means. It is co-educational and serves students of diverse backgrounds. We help our students grow intellectually, academically, spiritually, socially, and morally. Our Professional Work-Study Program (“PWSP”) is an integral part of our strategy. Through PWSP, our students work five days a month in a professional setting such as law firms, hospitals, banks, insurance companies, nonprofits and government entities. Through this work they cover almost half the cost of their education and they obtain a tremendous experience and education being mentored by professionals in our community. It is our aspiration that all of our students graduate from high school and college and become future leaders in the public and private sector, in corporations, service organizations, their own faith institutions, and the community at large.


Background Checks: All paid Cristo Rey staff must have on file both BCI and FBI background checks and must attend “Protecting God’s Children.”



Development Coordinator (Marketing and Communications Focus)

Who You Are

You’re creative. You enjoy building new processes, systems, and tools, and troubleshooting to improve them. You’re comfortable with ambiguity. You can create big plans and manage fine details without losing focus. You’re sensitive to others’ expectations, and you’re able to personalize your communication for various stakeholder groups. You embrace diversity (in race, ethnicity, faith tradition, socioeconomic status, and more) and you can discuss its complexities gracefully. You’re willing and able to take on unforeseen projects when the need arises, while also managing deadlines for your core projects. You love social media, and you embrace the opportunity to unplug occasionally. You value listening and you do it well. You’re passionate about working with young people, and you get excited by watching them grow. You want your work to feel meaningful and you want to personally connect with the people you impact.
