School Reviews

5.0 Stars   05/17/16
We chose St. Christopher's for the challenging academics that prepare the students for college. The faculty are well qualified and genuinely care about the boys. The philosophy and values that are taught at St. Christopher's reinforce those we teach our son at home. Coming into St. Christopher's as a freshman, our son has been welcomed by his peers. And, as parents, we feel welcomed by both faculty and other parents. There is a diversity of activities and opportunities available that satisfy many different interests and the boys are encouraged to try new things. St Christopher's is the perfect choice for our son.
