 President's Message

Welcome to Cristo Rey Research Triangle High School. My name is Mike Fedewa and I am the President of the newest Catholic high school in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area.

Our school is one of the most unique and creative high schools in North Carolina. We are a college preparatory school that includes a corporate work study program that not only provides our students with invaluable work experience, but also helps them with tuition!

However, the greatest thing about our school is the opportunity that it presents to our students. We will prepare them for college and place them in a major company in the area that will give them an experience unmatched in any other high school. A very important piece of what we are offering is that no one will be denied admission because of their economic position. Our expectation is that everyone of our students will succeed and be accepted into a four- year college or university.

We are planning to open in the Fall of 2021 with 100 freshmen. We will add a class every year until the school is at full enrollment. We are located at the historic American Tobacco Campus in downtown Durham. Our educators will be outstanding, and we will grow in faith with the guidance of our sponsor, the Jesuits of the east coast province.

I encourage you to explore our website, www.cristoreyrt.org, for more details. Do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have questions or would like to hear more.

We are very excited about the future and what it holds for our school and the students we will serve.
