Eligibility for Admissions


  • Good discipline and attendance record

  • Motivation and Maturity – Studying AND working as a high school student is not easy. Students should show the maturity and motivation to be able to handle both aspects of our curriculum.

  • Openness to religious values – Our Catholic faith guides our curriculum and practices. While it is not a requirement to be Catholic to attend, students should be open to a faith-based education.

  • Cristo Rey Research Triangle does not provide Special Education services but attempts to accommodate a student’s developmental, academic, social, emotional, and behavioral needs in the classroom to the best of our abilities. While we welcome students with a variety of learning differences, disabilities, and 504’s/IEPs, we offer limited accommodations to support emotional and academic success. All student files are reviewed by the Admissions Committee to determine if we have the capacity to serve the student.
