Welcome

Dear Friends,

As the President of Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School and Corporate Work Study Program, welcome to our website! We are a unique school for diverse students with limited financial means, combining a college prep curriculum with professional work experience, a model that empowers our students with the necessary skills to grow into mature and confident young people ready for success in college and beyond!

I invite you to take a virtual tour of DBCR through this website. View our videos; learn about our wonderful educational approach and what it means to be a student at Don Bosco Cristo Rey. Get to know our corporate partners who hire our students and check out the impressive newly expanded facility that is home to our DBCR family. Learn the many ways you can contribute and support our young people who believe in themselves, are hardworking and focused on changing their destiny.

As we prepare for our ninth incoming freshman class, we continue to celebrate the fact that the entire class of 2017 was accepted to college joining the classes of 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 in the attainment of such a great accomplishment. We also celebrate our college graduates who are DBCR alumni. This shows that our students’ dreams of earning college degrees for which they have worked so hard are coming true.

Despite our many successes there is still much more to do. We remain focused on the many students who come to us from 54 zip codes in Prince George’s and Montgomery Counties in Maryland and the District of Columbia. Some of these students travel great distances to get to the school. Some find balancing a job, their studies, and the long tiring days challenging, while a few feel the pressures of little time to experience the youthful exuberance of regular activities. Yet they would all agree that the sacrifices made are worthwhile for the chance to help pay for an education that they did not think would ever be possible. For many of our students attending DBCR is the first real hope they have of getting into college and of achieving their dreams in life!

To meet our students and hear their dreams is inspiring. To live and journey with them is to see God’s Spirit in their hearts. We must believe in our young people if they are to believe in themselves. I hope you find the time to visit our school, meet our students and experience “The School that Works!” Please contact us to schedule a date.

Perhaps you want to be part of this new and exciting mission as a student, educator, corporate partner, volunteer or donor. We welcome you! It is truly a privilege for all of us to be part of Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School and Corporate Work Study Program.

God Bless you,

Fr. Mike Conway, SDB
President
