Cristo Rey De La Salle East Bay High School is seeking an Account Manager in the Corporate Work Study Program for its Lasallian Catholic, co-educational, secondary school to open in the summer of 2018 on the campus formerly home to Saint Elizabeth High School. The school is sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers, District of San Francisco New Orleans.
