Cristo Rey Tampa Salesian High School is located on the campus of Mary Help of Christians Center, located off I-4 and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in the heart of East Tampa. Students come from families with limited resources who live in 46 different zip codes throughout the Tampa Bay area. The signature component of a Cristo Rey Network® School is the Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP). Cristo Rey Tampa partners with more than 60 local companies and organizations (nonprofit, government agencies, and businesses) who support this innovative education model.
Students work five full days each month with our Corporate Work Study Program Partners, earning nearly 40 percent of the cost of their education, while gaining invaluable real-world work experience from leading corporations and organizations in the Tampa Bay area. Through this innovative model, Cristo Rey Tampa students receive a private, college preparatory education at the same time as they are preparing for college and their careers.
Our distinctive approach to education equips students with the knowledge and skills to transform their lives through rigorous academics, four years of work experience, and support to and through college. CWSP Partners are committed to enriching the lives of our students via coaching, mentoring, and supervision. They fill an entry-level position at a competitive cost with well-trained students while enhancing diversity and talent pipelines.
