Christ Church School is founded on a Christian attitude and atmosphere that encourages and nurtures the intellectual, physical, social, cultural and spiritual development of each child according to their individual needs. First through fifth grade students benefit from comprehensive classroom instruction designed to challenge and prepare them for future studies by way of an effective core curriculum that provides a balance of structured lessons and creative activities.
In offering Christ Church School students "a foundation for life" we steadfastly provide what former Secretary of Education William J. Bennett says is the ideal elementary school curriculum. "The essential particulars of a solid elementary school education" include the seven basic subjects: English, mathematics, social studies, science, foreign language, physical and health education and the fine arts.
