Our mission includes providing affordable tuition to all Detroit Cristo Rey families who qualify*. Thanks to our unique Corporate Work Study Program and our development fundraising, we provide a high-quality college prep education at a very low cost.  

Here at Detroit Cristo Rey, our families contribute no more than $3,000 for tuition. Tuition is set on a case by case basis. Each family needs to have an individual financial evaluation. Based on their results, an amount will be set.

Ex. Some families may only have to pay $35 a month or up to $300 a month. This amount will be determined by the finance office.

*In order to be compliant with our school norms and policies we must verify that your family qualifies to attend. Eligibility is based on household size and annual income. It’s necessary to verify your financial eligibility to continue with our admissions process. Without verifying your annual income we cannot guarantee that your child will be considered for admission. If you have any questions about your eligibility please contact the Admissions Office before you start an application.
