We're Excited About 2016!

We hope everyone had a safe and healthy New Year! Here at Cristo Rey San Jose, we are looking forward to another year to be men and women for others who work, learn, lead, and succeed. 

Some of our 2016 resolutions include:

  • Welcoming the next class of 2020 
  • Having our first class begin the college search process 
  • Finishing our new academic building 
What are your resolutions? We hope you make one of them to continue following us in our journey to empower students from underserved communities to thrive academically and professionally.

Building One is Going Up!
On Thursday December 17, 2015, CRSJ supporters gathered to commemorate the building of our newest school facility, The Steve Finn Center for Collaboration and Individualized Learning. Attendees included chairmen of the board John Sobrato and BJ Cassin as well as our President Fr. Pabst.  We were so grateful to share in such a momentous occasion with some of our most valued supporters. The building is set to be finished in time for the beginning of our next school year. 

Our continued thanks go to all who are making this new building possible, we are so grateful. But, we still need just $3 million more to reach our goal of $15 million! Want to learn more about our Capital Campaign and how to donate? Contact Shelby Saso at or visit our website.
