The all-girls campus at ICA Cristo Rey allows for more opportunities — academic, leadership and athletic — for each student. ICA Cristo Rey students express themselves freely and thrive in the school's unique nurturing environment. The best way to see what an all-girls school is like, however, is to visit the campus.
ICA Cristo Rey is looking for quality students who demonstrate the capability to handle a rigorous academic program and extracurricular activities and have the maturity to be good employees within our Corporate Work Study Program.
All students and their families interested in ICA Cristo Rey are encouraged to visit us. Tours and information sessions are offered Wednesday afternoons. Please call for an informational package or to schedule a tour.
All ICA Cristo Rey students are expected to wear a uniform. At school, they have the options of a skirt/kilt, khaki pants, white polos and ICA Cristo Rey black vests or cardigan sweaters. CWSP uniforms follows the same guidelines with the exception of a skirt.
A group of four students make up a team to share a full time job position, Monday through Friday. Students rotate work days (see chart below), totaling five full days a month. Work day hours and academic schedules are structured to enable work without students missing classes. The jobs are entry-level work opportunities in professional office settings. To see where ICA Cristo Rey students are working, take a look at the school's list of current sponsors.
All students are chaperoned to and from the work site either by van, BART, or walking. On work days, students begin and end their day at ICA Cristo Rey to have more of a connection with the school and for attendance reasons.
The summer before classes begin, students will attend a two-week of intensive job skills training at ICA Cristo Rey, called "MAPS", to acquire the skills needed for successful corporate experiences. Work-site orientation and training will be provided at the actual job sites.
