Advisory Committee

Cristo Rey's Advisory Committee is made of New York area professionals whose mission is to advance the vision of the Board of Trustees to make college preparatory education a reality for our students. Advisory Committee members leverage their professional and social networks to increase awareness of our school. 

The signature Advisory Committee event is the Magic of Cristo Rey, held each February at Tavern on the Green. The event features a silent and live auction, food, cocktails and fun!
