Cristo Rey OKC is accepting applications for students who will be in 9th grade in Fall of 2019.

Cristo Rey OKC serves students who desire a college preparatory, Catholic education but could not otherwise afford one. Students earn their way to success by working five days a month at one of our corporate work-study partners.

Applicants must meet Both of the criteria below.



A student’s family must:

  • Meet financial need requirements, since this is the primary criterion for admission. Each applicant must complete a Financial Aid Application/Verification through our third-party provider.


Students must:

  • Be at least 14 years old on, or before, August 12, 2019

  • Be legally authorized to work in the United States. Documentation will be required during enrollment. 

  • Be committed to work five, full days a month in a corporate setting.



Students are expected to be:

Open to religious values: Our Catholic faith guides our curriculum and practices. While it is not a requirement to be Catholic to attend Cristo Rey, students should be open to a faith-based education.

Demonstrate discipline and a good attendance record: Presence at school and work each day is crucial for student success. Any work days missed MUST be made up during school holidays or breaks.

Motivated and mature: Studying AND working as a high school student are not easy. Students should have the maturity and motivation to handle both core areas of a Cristo Rey education.


Please call the admissions office, if you have additional questions about our criteria, at 405.945.9100

Completed admissions applications are reviewed in the order received.

Offers of admission are extended until our enrollment goal is met. We strongly encourage families to begin the process as early as possible.

Enrollment of Students who accepted offers of admission

Once a student accepts Cristo Rey’s offer of admission, an enrollment packet is mailed. Families have 10 days from the letter’s date to complete the enrollment packet and return it to Cristo Rey OKC. A $50 enrollment fee, which is applied to tuition, is required to reserve the student’s seat for the 2019-2020 academic year. Students who do not complete and return the enrollment packet within 10 days are automatically placed on our Wait List.

Admissions Policy

Cristo Rey Oklahoma City Catholic High School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, ethnicity, national origin, or disability in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, or athletic and other school-administered programs, including student admission.

Cristo Rey provides a Catholic, college preparatory education and professional work experience to students from families with limited financial means. 

From their work efforts through our Corporate Work Study program, Cristo Rey students earn approximately 60% of their own tuition. 

Every family is asked to make an investment in their student’s education.  Families are required to complete a financial assessment form and submit it to TADS, our third-party vendor.  TADS independently, fairly and equitably assesses a family’s financial situation. The results of the financial assessment are used to set a tuition amount that is meaningful to a family, but not a hardship.  Tuition for Cristo Rey families is set on sliding scale according to a family’s circumstances.  Family contributions toward tuition range from $30 to $250 a month.  

Financial Aid (English)

(Español Debajo)

Tuition assistance is available on the basis of demonstrated need. If you believe you qualify financially to attend Cristo Rey OKC, you are encouraged to apply.

TADS is an independent vendor that fairly and equitably assesses a family’s financial situation. Recommendations from TADS are used by Cristo Rey OKC’s admissions committee, in accordance with its policies, to determine if a family qualifies for admission and recommends a tuition amount.
