Cristo Rey High School

Supporting KC Youth Through Education

Cristo Rey is a college preparatory high school for urban youth with limited educational options. All students at Cristo Rey participate in a work-study program through which they finance the majority of the cost of their education. Through this program, these students gain work experience and realize the relevance of their education. Elixir is a proud supporter of Cristo Rey's work study program since its inception and are honored to help these children make a better life through education. 

Cristo Rey has a goal of preparing students for success in college and life by combining rigorous academics with real world work experience. Many of these students are the first in their family to graduate from college and Cristo Rey provides a realistic path to a life of dignity in exchange for hard work and determination.

"Thanks to Elixir I’ve been given the opportunity to better my life and gain valuable work experience. I know that whatever becomes of my future career I will owe a lot to Elixir for all the skills that they have taught me ."
