Our Mission

Christ the King Preparatory School in Newark, NJ seeks to provide quality, Catholic, college preparatory education to urban young people with limited economic resources and educational options.

Our Method

We use a longer school day and year, academic assistance, and counseling to prepare students with a broad range of academic abilities for college. All students participate in a work-study program through which they finance the majority of the cost of their education, gain real world job experience, grow in self-confidence, and realize the relevance of their education.

Sister Kathleen Reilly


It is with great sadness that we share the news that Sister Kathleen Reilly of the Sisters of the Catholic Apostolate died peacefully on Wednesday, January 17, 2018.


Sister Kathleen taught science here at Christ the King Prep for several years. 


Eternal Rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her.
