Before you submit an application, you must meet the following requirements:
DBCR accepts a limited number of transfer students for rising 10th grade class. Each transfer student’s application is unique and each case is given special consideration. For more information, please contact a member of the admissions team.
We do not accept faxed documents during the admissions process.
DBCR will open the application process in October.

How To Apply

All steps are mandatory for a student to be considered an applicant at Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School and the Corporate Work Study Program:

Step 1: Admission Application

Complete our admissions application online with student and family information. A $26 non-refundable fee applies.

Step 2: Personal Essay

Talk about the choices you had for high school and why you want to attend Don Bosco Cristo Rey. What aspects of your personality and factors in your life make you a good fit for the school and Corporate Work Study Program?

Essay should be one page, double spaced, typed with Times New Roman 12-point type.

Step 3: Two Teacher Recommendation Forms

One recommendation form must come from a core subject teacher (English, Math, Science, etc.). The second recommendation may come from a counselor or a second teacher.

We now offer online recommendation forms for teachers to complete. Submit your teachers’ information here, and we will email them a recommendation form to complete.

Remember that teachers and counselors may have other recommendations to complete. Please give them enough time to complete yours.

*Students who currently attend an ADW Catholic school do not need to complete this step. Instead, you will request that your school send us your Catholic High School Student Information Form.

Step 4: School Transcripts

You need to have your report cards and other school records sent to DBCR. Give the signed Request for Student Records Consent to Release Form to your current Guidance Counselor or Principal. They will email or mail your records directly to DBCR.

We ask schools for the following information:

We will need updated report cards depending on what time in the school year you applied (Ex. If you completed an application in October, you will have to turn in your first semester report card when you receive, your school will not automatically give us this information).

This can take a few weeks for schools to complete so make sure you turn in your form with enough time.

*Students who currently attend an ADW Catholic school do not need to complete this step. Instead, you will request that your school send us your Catholic High School Student Information Form.

Step 5: Birth Certificate

Please upload a copy of the original student’s birth certificate or other official U.S. document to verify the students age here.

Step 6: Tax Forms

Every family must provide evidence of financial eligibility, and submit their most recent tax forms or other income verification documents.

As part of our mission to help those families who could otherwise not afford a Catholic education, we follow a strict income guideline. If you need more information or to find out if your family qualifies, contact the Admissions Department.

Step 7: Student Interview

Once the office has received and reviewed a complete application, we will notify the student and parents/guardians to schedule an interview. We will hold several interview sessions beginning in January. Families will be notified via email for available interview dates, and must schedule their interview through the link we provide them. We do not allow walk-ins.
