The School That Works

Don Bosco Cristo Rey is a Catholic, co-educational high school located in the Takoma Park neighborhood of Washington, DC. Our students come exclusively from families of limited economic means. As a member of the national Cristo Rey Network® of schools, Don Bosco partners with more than 300 local companies and organizations who are committed to our innovative Corporate Work Study Program. Students work one day a week, earning nearly 60 percent of the cost of their education.

Don Bosco Cristo Rey’s Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP) prepares dedicated students for college and career readiness while also fulfilling real work responsibilities for the company. CWSP employers fill an entry-level position at a competitive cost with well-trained students while enhancing diversity and talent pipelines. Students job-share a position to pay for 60 percent of their yearly tuition, and in turn gain valuable on-the-job experience in highly professional settings.
