The distinct purpose of Christ the King Catholic School is to create a Christian educational community where students, teachers, and parents, in a spirit of love, share knowledge and life experiences, enlightened and enlivened by faith.
The staff of Christ the King School focuses on the individual needs of our children by helping them to know themselves, their human family, and their faith. Since education is the formation of the whole child, our school places proper emphasis upon spiritual, intellectual, cultural, social, and physical values, as appropriate for children of different ages and developmental needs.
While Christ the King School emphasizes personal responsibility for learning, we accommodate the individual learning style of each child.
We provide co-curricular experiences to support opportunities for successful learning. To develop mature Catholic citizens, dedicated to their family, Church, and world, we provide opportunities for students to help plan and participate in many school-sponsored events, including liturgies, art and science fairs, fund-raisers, mission programs, and field days.
Christ the King School advocates the role of parents as the primary educators of their children. Because parental support and guidance are essential for a child’s success in our school, we seek to support parents in their role as primary educators by encouraging consistent involvement in our school’s educational, spiritual, and social activities. The children witnessing our community of parents, both devoted to and involved in their child’s Catholic education is an integral part of Christ the King School.
Located in the geographical center of University City, Christ the King School both reflects and values the ethnic and economic diversity of our community. Daily living and learning with children and teachers of diverse backgrounds exhibit Christ’s global message. We are a parish-based school and rely on the parish community for support. Our school’s commitment to sustaining a diverse student body involves welcoming children of other faiths to share in our educational mission. For this mission to succeed, we expect those who join our school community to participate in the school’s program, both academic and religious, and abide by all policies and regulations.
Christ the King School operates in a fiscally responsible manner to provide an excellent and affordable education. We challenge the creative imaginations, critical minds, and compassionate hearts of our students with the pursuit of wisdom in the vision and values of Jesus Christ.
