Cristo Rey Atlanta opened in 2014 under the auspices of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) in midtown Atlanta, in a three-storey building which formerly served as the chancery building for the Archdiocese of Atlanta. It is located across from a metro transit station, accessible to students from throughout the Atlanta area. Students spend five days each month working in the corporate world, which pays for most of their tuition.
To compensate for time spent away in the Corporate Work Study Program, the school day runs from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm. In the academic program, each graduate will have earned: four units of English language arts, mathematics, science, and religious studies; three units of social studies, and world languages; two units of either physical education, technology, senior project, visual/performing arts, or other academic disciplines.
The dress code requires white shirt/blouse and grey trousers/skirt, usually accompanied with the striped gold and black tie. A grey/blue sweater or blazer is also required during the winter months.
Activities and sports must not interfere with a student's commitment to academics or corporate work assignment. Students volunteer with organizations such as Red Cross, Big Brother/Big Sister, and Habitat for Humanity. Other activities include:
For athletics, Cristo Rey is a member of the Georgia Independent School Association. In 2015 the following team sports were active:
