Mercury Systems and the Christo Rey Network- A Proud Parnership 

Christo Yet

Mercury Systems is a proud partner of the Christo Rey Network of Schools. Comprised of 28 high schools across the United States, The Christo Rey Network provides a high-quality and affordable education to deserving students who might not otherwise have the opportunity. Thanks to the Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP), Mercury is playing a part in the Cristo Rey mission.

Since 2012 Mercury has sponsored several students from Notre Dame Christo Rey High School in Lawrence, Massachusetts. As part of the Cristo Rey Network’s CWSP, sponsored students come to Mercury one day a week during the school year to work, learn valuable professional and interpersonal skills as well as make real and important contributions to our business. In return for their time and talent, Mercury assists with their tuition.

Since its inception, 100% of graduates from Christo Rey Network schools are accepted to either two or four year colleges around the country. We are proud to be a part of this program and will soon be expanding our participation, sponsoring students from Christo Rey schools located close to other Mercury facilities across the US.
