Message from Corporate Work-Study

Dear Corporate Partners,


Education at Cristo Rey Miami occurs both in the classroom and in corporate offices throughout the city. Through the school's unique Corporate Work Study Program, every student works five full days a month to fund the majority of their education, gain job experience, grow in self-confidence, and realize the relevance of their education. This experience touches the lives of our students, their families, and the corporate partners who provide the job opportunities.



With your support of the Corporate Work Study Program, students are able to provide you with a job well done, while gaining valuable work experience and cultivating a strong network of professional relationships that will benefit them for a lifetime. These benefits are mutual. Our corporate partners, in other regions, report having students in their offices improves internal morale. Most job partners deepen their relationship with Cristo Rey Miami by visiting the school, attending and sponsoring our special events, volunteering, and mentoring our students both inside and outside of the office. We welcome your involvement and interest in Cristo Rey Miami. Quite simply, the school would not exist without the corporate support that we enjoy.


We are incredibly grateful for the support the Miami community has already shown to the Corporate Work Study Program since we announced Cristo Rey Miami would open its doors in 2020. By matching business interests with the educational and economic needs of our students, we give them their best chance of overcoming the financial barriers that limit their educational and professional opportunities. We are the school that works in the heart of Miami.


If you are  interested in partnering with us, please let us know.
