Cost and Financial Eligibility


Tuition:  Cristo Rey San José is designed to provide to a quality, Catholic, education to students who could not otherwise afford one. 

  • All Cristo Rey San José families are asked to contribute a designated portion towards the cost of attendance.  
  • We operate tuition on sliding-scale based on the family's demonstrated need
  • Our maximum family contribution towards the cost of education is $2,500 per year, with most of our families paying much less.
  • We subsidize the remaining cost of education for EVERY CRSJ STUDENT (Cost per year per student= $15,750)


Financial Eligibility: Because of our mission, we do evaluate family income and financial need as a criterion for admission on a case-by-case basis.

  • Every applicant must submit a FACTS (Paper Form) application to verify income via a 3rd party.
  • 80% of our families qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch Meals
  • We consider the high cost of living in San José and aim to provide opportunities to those that may not otherwise be able to afford private school tuition.
