Tel: (816)363-1113
Grades: K - 8 | 110 students
The administrators, faculty and staff of Christ the King share a vision for the development of our students which enables the whole child to learn happily while preparing to take his or her place as an adult in God's Kingdom.
Each child is accepted, loved and treasured as a gift from God.
Areas of special attention in our school environment are love for others, as well as for our God and for ourselves, high ideals of respect and justice, effective communication skills, responsible decision making and problem solving.
To achieve this kind of an education for each child, we employ a wide variety of methods, so that learning styles and individual differences may be accommodated.
We do not work alone, but in cooperation and good communication with the family of each child, and with all the teachings and traditions of our Catholic faith to assist us.
We feel that the growth of the child is mainly from within, through the grace of God, and that we are the privileged facilitators in this process.
