Dr. Michael J. Fedewa, founding president of Cristo Rey Research Triangle High School, says plans to open a new high school in fall 2021 are moving forward.
The school will be a part of the Cristo Rey Network®, the largest network of high schools in the country that exclusively supports under-served youth.
Cristo Rey Research Triangle High School will be a 9th – 12th grade, Catholic learning community that educates young people of limited economic means to become men and women of faith, purpose and service. Through a rigorous college preparatory curriculum, integrated with a professional work study experience, students graduate ready to succeed in college and in life.
Cristo Rey Research Triangle High School is scheduled to welcome freshman students to its campus in the summer of 2021. Classes for sophomores, juniors and seniors will be added one year at a time toward a full capacity of 400 students by fall of 2024. Learn more.
