About Us

Cristo Rey St. Martin is a Catholic learning community that empowers young people of limited means to become men and women of faith, purpose and service. Through a rigorous college preparatory curriculum, integrated with relevant work-study experience, CRSM students graduate ready to succeed in college and life. We exclusively serve families with limited economic means in Waukegan and North Chicago.

CRSM admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities available to students at the school.  It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic programs and other school-administered programs.

We are recognized by the Archdiocese of Chicago as a Catholic school and are endorsed by three religious orders: the Clerics of St. Viator, the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, and the Sinsinawa Dominicans.
