We have three children at CTK ranging from Pre-K through middle school. We looked at many local Catholic and public schools and could not be happier with our choice! The education is outstanding across all grades, but especially the middle school where we are blown away by the resources, advanced classes, and options available to students. The technology teaching and resources are better than we have seen at any other school and the school brings many other facets into the curriculum to make sure children are well-rounded students and equipped to be leaders in the world and able to function in an engaged, independent way as they grow up. The teachers at this school are second to none- they all go above and beyond and have a true passion for the students and the school. The small class size is a huge benefit. Most importantly, our children come home smiling every day. We cannot say enough good things about CTK!

My husband and I decided to send our son to Christ the King for pre-K4 to "test it out" and see if we wanted to commit to K through 8. We were so happy with the school that we decided to enroll him in kindergarten (and are soooo glad we did and he was in-person 5 days/week with no COVID incidents in his class the whole year). We have been nothing but happy with the school. Our sons both WANT to go to school every day and seem to truly enjoy their peers and teachers. Can`t say enough good things about the principal and her dedication to the school. The community of families is also a huge plus in our minds. Highly recommend CTK!

This was the best decision we made for our daughter. Exemplifies the true meaning of a Catholic Education with the support of Parish and staff. The administration is always trying to find ways to improve and excel beyond what is expected. The school also has a great athletic program and dedicated volunteers to make it successful every year. It is truly like one big family. Love this school.
