History Department

The History Department at Cristo Rey San José Jesuit High School prepares students to critically examine the past as well as the challenges of living in an ever-changing society. The study of Social Studies enables students to evaluate historical and contemporary issues, understand global relationships, and make connections between past, present, and future. Students are encouraged to be men and women for others by learning how to be responsible citizens.  Through a value-based education, students see the importance of being a person of integrity and compassion and learn how to be involved politically and socially, especially to advocate for injustices.
