Established in Lawrence, MA in 2004, Notre Dame Cristo Rey High School is a private, Catholic, college preparatory high school currently based in Methuen, Massachusetts serving 290 economically disadvantaged youth. Sponsored by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur US East-West Province, a division of the international community of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, NDCR is part of the Cristo Rey Network, a growing association of 38 schools across the United States whose education model is built around the Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP), a unique and highly successful partnership with the business community developed by the Jesuits.  Through the CWSP, each of our student works five full days per month during the academic year at one of 75 companies throughout the Merrimack Valley, I-93/495 corridors, and southern New Hampshire. 

At full enrollment, Cristo Rey Network high schools are able to cover nearly 80% of their operating expenses through the work program and a modest tuition.
NDCR has provided an opportunity for hundreds of youth in the greater Lawrence, MA area to be educated through a rigorous Catholic, college preparatory curriculum. Through the work of highly dedicated faculty and staff, the high school continues to celebrate 100% college acceptance of its students into four-year colleges and universities.
