This paper examines Cristo Rey schools, why they work, how they work and what parts of their education/business design can be successfully transferred to other Catholic high schools. It will look at the Cristo Rey Network, a cooperative organization formed to standardize the Cristo Rey approach, offer resources to the individual schools and help promote the spread of Cristo Rey schools to cities that can support them. Through interviews with founders and early backers it will review the origins of the Cristo Rey method and how it has been replicated in places such as Cristo Rey Boston High School and Notre Dame Cristo Rey High School in Lawrence. And it looks to see what lessons can be drawn by other Catholic high schools wrestling with sliding enrollment and shrinking income.
