We have two kids currently enrolled and another who will enter pre school soon. I have been nothing but impressed with the faculty. The teachers personalize work for kids who can move faster or have difficulty. Hey are patient yet firm with behavior. The administration works hard to create a positive environment for both faculty and students. My kids look forward to school each day. I am very thankful they are growing up in such a nurturing environment.

Christ the King School is a loving community that fosters independence and growth while providing academic excellence to students (preschool - 8th grade). CKS employs amazing faculty and staff that nurture the development of the whole child (spiritual, academics, arts, community service minded, etc) in order to form the next generation of leaders. My family is proud to be members of the Christ the King School community!
