Family Contribution and Step up for Students

Financial Contribution


The cost to educate each student at Cristo Rey Miami High School is approximately $15,000 per year - which includes books, meals (breakfast and lunch) and extracurricular fees.  Cristo Rey Miami High School is committed to making a high-quality, Catholic college preparatory education available to qualified students from low-income families.  

Students earn 50% of the cost of their education through our innovative Corporate Work Study Program.

The Florida Tax Credit Scholarship administered through Step up for Florida Students provides an additional 30% of the tuition cost.  Participation in The Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program is a requirement for all Cristo Rey Miami Students. Donations from individuals and foundations cover another 10% of the cost.


The remaining cost of the student's education is the family's responsibility. This amount ranges from $250-$2,000 per year ($25 to $200 per month for 10 months), based upon financial need.


Every family is expected to make some financial contribution to their student's education. The Admissions and Finance Offices will work with each family to determine the appropriate amount.


Family Contribution 

Cristo Rey Miami believes in family partnerships for the development and education of their son/daughter.  Parents and family members are expected to commit an amount of time quarter in support of their student(s).  A parent steering committee will be formed to allow families to have a voice within the school and the decisions that are made.  In addition, Cristo Rey Miami will be using several programs that will allow parents and students to be aware of academics, behavior, and school news.
