HistoryEdit

The effort to open Cristo Rey OKC began in the fall of 2015 among members of the Catholic community, with the approval of Archbishop Paul S. Coakley. Local businesses pledged to support the corporate work-study program.[2] With the approval of the Cristo Rey Network, a feasibility study was launched and subsequently the school's opening was set for the fall of 2018 on the campus of Oklahoma State University–Oklahoma City.[3]
