Message from our Chancellor

Dear Friends of Cristo Rey San José, 

            Cristo Rey Jesuit High School is all about OPPORTUNITY. Thanks to incredible teachers, staff, administrators, volunteers, donors, corporate work study partners and board members our students have so many possibilities available to them for the future.

            We are the only Catholic high school intentionally serving the East San José Community and our graduates will have many doors open to them at colleges and places of employment. I thank you, the stake holders of our school, for all that you have done and continue to do to support Cristo Rey Jesuit High School.

            What we are about is the kids. Your support for the 475 students who currently fill our halls creates their OPPORTUNITY to attend a Jesuit, Catholic high school that will prepare them for college and a vibrant life beyond.

            Many of our students will be the first in their families to have the chance to attend college, let alone graduate from high school. Many will take their newfound knowledge and discover new technologies, be the president or principal of a CR school or change the landscape of our country with their advocacy efforts. Because of being part of the school’s Christian Service program many will continue serving those who are less fortunate in our community, as they themselves understand how important a helping hand can be.

            I ask you to be a Rey of Hope for Cristo Rey San José by making a donation now or in the future. Perhaps, you can help us find a job for a team of our students to work. No matter the size of the gift, you will empower students from underserved communities in San José to be men and women for others.

            I have invested my Jesuit life in believing in the success of my students. Your investment in Cristo Rey will help prepare them spiritually, academically, and professionally to complete college and you will give them the OPPORTUNITY to become accomplished leaders committed to a lifelong pursuit of learning, faith, and justice.

            As we continue to grow, our needs grow with us. On behalf of all of our students, faculty, and staff, thank you for your support. God bless all of you and Viva Cristo Rey!

Fr. Peter Pabst, S.J.
Chancellor of Cristo Rey San José Jesuit High School
