School Notes:

  • LIFT: Learning Integration For Tomorrow 
  • Students from age two through the eighth grade will learn foundational academic skills in an environment that is engaging and collaborative.  They will demonstrate mastery of grade-appropriate content, and together with their teachers, learn how to work in teams effectively, become creative problem solvers, know and apply national technology standards ( and conduct their lives with integrity, honor and empathy.  Christ Episcopal School (CES) and The Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Technology in Education (JHU/CTE) present LIFT: Learning Integration For Tomorrow, a curriculum delivery model that represents what the best of educational research indicates is the effective model for 21st century teaching and learning.  This collaborative project focuses on in-depth training of all CES faculty so that every child in every classroom is receiving the benefits of teachers who know and use research-supported best practices.  The goal for LIFT is to improve student achievement for all CES students and to prepare them to thrive beyond the CES experience:  in their families, in their community, and in their next educational environment including secondary and post-secondary programs. As supported by The Partnership for 21st Century Skills (, LIFT focuses on the traditional 3R’s (reading, writing and arithmetic) in tandem with four critically important skills today’s children will need for their future success.   These four skills are described as The Four C’s and include the ability to think critically, be creative, communicate effectively and collaborate with a team.Firmly grounded in the Episcopal school tradition, CES adds an important fifth C to the Four C’s defined by P21.  The fifth C is character.  In all that it tries to accomplish, Christ Episcopal School never forgets it commitment to maintaining focus on the global community in which we live and assisting its children in developing a heart for others and a desire to serve.

School Reviews

Christ Episcopal School is a gem! The academic rigor and focus on building children of exceptional character is validated every time I step foot on campus. The entire community - parents, teachers and administration - is a caring and dedicated team. My 5th grader has attended CES since Pre-K and we grow more fond of the school each year!

Amazing families, incredible friendships with the kids and the parents, unique off campus experiences and the music/arts programs are some of the fantastic attributes of CES! This is on top of the challenging yet encouraging education provided by dedicated and caring teachers. We love it here.
