Info

Cristo Rey New York High School is a college preparatory, Catholic high school located in East Harlem, Manhattan, New York City, a member of the Cristo Rey Network of schools. Students spend one day out of the week interning with multinational corporations such as Pfizer, American Express, JP Morgan, and McKinsey. The school's founder and principal is Bill Ford, whose aunt is the martyr Ita Ford.
According to Father Joseph Parkes, the president of the school, Cristo Rey High School was "founded around a work-study program, so that, in effect, the school would function like a temp agency." The students, who are 98% black and Latino, serve as a "diversity pipeline" for the corporations, while the students' salaries constitute much of the school's operating costs. The students gain "a good deal of poise" in addition to clerical skills. Some are offered summer jobs.
