- 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 (www.iste.org/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 (www.p21.org), 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.

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.
