Corporate Work Study Program


A Working Model

What makes our Cristo Rey model unique is an innovative Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP), through which every student finances the majority of the cost of his/her education.
The Corporate Work Study Program places students into entry-level positions and generates much needed revenue for the school. 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.
The students are not on the payroll of the employing organization, but rather are employees of our separately incorporated CWSP.
By outsourcing full time, entry-level office jobs through this program, companies enable our students to earn tuition while gaining valuable on-the-job experience. Job sharing teams of students fill 9:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m. positions one day per week throughout the school year. Students must complete a training program that includes workshops such as: Phone Skills, Dress for Success, Time Management & First Impressions.

Our students are engaged in primarily entry-level positions, performing tasks that include, but are not limited to:
  • Filing
  • Patient Transport
  • Answering phones
  • Data-entry
  • Copying
  • Spanish translation
  • Assembling mailings
  • Delivering inter-office mail
  • Internet Research

Overall Benefits to Corporate Work Study Partners include:
