Small, Urban Washington, DC High School Adds Differentiated Professional Development

Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School (DBCR) is a small, urban, Roman Catholic high school of 315 students and 30 teachers. Part of the Archdiocese of Washington, DC, DBCR initially opened its doors in August 2007.

This is a unique and extraordinary school that is transforming the lives of its students.

DBCR is a college preparatory school offering an excellent education to highly motivated young men and women who are willing to help earn their own tuition money through a Corporate Work Study Program. It specifically serves inner-city students who are determined to go to college but are economically disadvantaged. The average yearly income of their families is less than $30,000 and most students qualify for free or reduced price lunch programs. More than half of the students live in single-parent households.
