Video Features Detroit Cristo Rey High School

One of the myths of Catholic education is that its schools serve only wealthy, suburban families. The following video profiles Detroit Cristo Rey High School, a college preparatory school serving those who could not typically afford a private education. The high school is co-sponsored by the Congregation of St. Basil and the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart Mary.

    Hi Nick,

    Thanks for the shout out and link! We really appreciate you taking the time to spread the word.

    One note:

    It is correct that the first Cristo Rey school was founded by Jesuits in Chicago in 1996 and that 11 of the Cristo Rey Network schools are sponsored by the Jesuits. However, Detroit Cristo Rey is co-sponsored by the Congregation of St. Basil and the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, both of whom have been involved in education in southeast Michigan for many decades.

    Thanks for the correction, Dean! That’s what happens when I write too early in the morning and try to squeeze out an article before getting the kids off to school. 🙂 I’ve updated the article and hopefully got it right this time.
