ICA Cristo Rey Academy is entering its 135th year as a San Francisco institution for young women and its eighth year as a member of the Cristo Rey Network. Cristo Rey is an extraordinary program enabling our students to receive a college-prep education in the Dominican tradition, while also gaining experience in a corporate environment. Our Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose had the wisdom and foresight to join the Cristo Rey Network in 2009 and it certainly “works.”
- 100% of the class of 2017 applied to a 4-year college & were accepted into a college. Each has a plan to receive a degree in 4 years.
- 78% will be entering 4-year public or private universities
- 22% will attend a 2-year program in 2016-2017 and each has a plan to go on to attend a 4-year program
- 73% of the graduating class of 2017 are the first in their families to attend college. Last year, 2016, 85% were the first.

ICA has completed the $13.5M campaign, A Courageous Choice for the Future, to assist with transitional costs as we integrate the Cristo Rey model. We thank you for assisting ICA as we work towards financial self sustainability.
ICA Cristo Rey Academy has been blessed with wonderful alumnae, friends, parents, foundations and corporate sponsors moved by our mission and willing to support us. As a Cristo Rey school, ICA has entered a new stage of our long history and we are so grateful to have the continuing support of so many benefactors. It is our hope that this generosity will continue to inspire others so that we can continue to provide a quality, college-prep education to our students.
All gifts are focused on supporting our mission to prepare young women for college and a life of faith, integrity and service. As a Cristo Rey school in the Dominican tradition, we are committed to providing both excellent education and meaningful corporate work study experiences to students of limited financial resources.
