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, in need of a high-quality, affordable education. 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 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.”
