Construction of the gym, locker rooms and fitness center has begun! The concrete for the gym floor was poured, the wall is being built, and the steel for the fitness center and locker rooms is going up.

Our current location does not have a full-sized gym, so this is a very exciting addition for the Cristo Rey community that was made possible by a donation from Essent Guaranty, Inc. Not only will the Cristo Rey Blue Pride be able to have home games at our campus, but the gym will be a home for Health and Fitness classes, assemblies, pep rallies, events, and more!

Through a donation from Philadelphia Insurance Companies Foundation, the new school will also include a fitness center — another exciting addition for our community. The space will feature large windows on the north wall that look out over the gym and large windows on the south wall that look out over the athletic field.

At Cristo Rey, we want to help students develop a healthy body, mind, and spirit. With these facilities, we have greater opportunities for students to learn and practice living a healthy lifestyle, as well as continue to grow a culture of strong school spirit.

Let’s go Blue Pride!
