College Guidance

Cristo Rey Brooklyn High School is committed to ensuring all students gain the opportunity to attend and succeed in college and beyond.  In recent consecutive years, 100% of our graduating students have been accepted to four-year colleges and universities with at least one option providing full financial needs met.
