Thank you for considering Cristo Rey St. Martin College Prep! We are an affordable, safe, co-educational, Catholic high school committed to academic excellence for students of limited economic means in the greater Waukegan and North Chicago area. CRSM students help pay for a significant portion of their tuition by working five full days each month for local corporations and professional firms via our Corporate Work Study Program.
We also offer additional tuition assistance to qualified students. We strive to develop each of our students’ full potential amid an atmosphere of mutual respect for the religious and cultural heritage of each individual. CRSM students – and their families – are invested in learning and experiencing what it will take to be admitted to and to graduate from a four-year college or university. They work hard, form close friendships, and learn to give back to their community and the world. Do you see yourself here? If so, come visit and learn more!
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, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
