About the Employer

Cristo Rey Orange County High School is located in Santa Ana, CA, and is part of the national Cristo Rey Network. Cristo Rey schools use a rigorous academic model, supported by best practices in instruction and assessment, to prepare students with a broad range of intellectual abilities for college and life. Further, Cristo Rey Network schools employ an innovative Corporate Work Study Program that provides students with real world work experiences. In this unique model, every student works an average of five days a month to fund the majority of the cost of his or her education while gaining job experience, growing in self-confidence, and realizing the relevance of this education. Students work in various corporate and business settings including law firms, banks, hospitals, universities, and with other professional organizations. Cristo Rey Orange County High School will open its doors to its inaugural freshmen class in the fall of 2023. Like all Cristo Rey schools, Cristo Rey Orange County is a Catholic, college preparatory high school for students of all faiths from families of limited financial means. The school is co-educational and serves students of diverse backgrounds. We help our students grow intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, and professionally. Our aspiration is that all our students graduate from high school and college and become the future leaders in our churches, institutions, businesses, nonprofits, and the community at large.

Please provide responses to the following prompts (500 words or less): 1. What attracts you to the Cristo Rey mission? Why do you feel you are a match for this unique opportunity to be a member of the founding faculty at Cristo Rey Orange County High School? 2. Describe your philosophy of education and how you would put it into practice at Cristo Rey Orange County. 3. Many high school students confront an urgent, double challenge: they struggle with reading comprehension, basic numeracy, and they have acquired less of the academic vocabulary and core knowledge—in science, history, civics, the arts, etc.—that are critical to their success. These two challenges are reciprocal; difficulty with reading comprehension limits students’ ability to gain new knowledge and vocabulary, and limited vocabulary and core knowledge hinder reading comprehension. As a teacher in a college-prep high school with students facing this reality, how would (or do) you address it
