City Tree Christian School

  • City Tree Christian School is an ethnically and socio-economically diverse school located in downtown San Diego.
  • We serve as an outreach of First Presbyterian Church, committed to integrating educational excellence with the Bible-based teachings of Jesus Christ.
  • Children will excel academically, be good citizens, and know God when we provide educational experiences, needed care and protection in a loving Christian environment.
  • The school curriculum introduces children to a completely God-centered orientation of life, to help them develop a thoroughly Christian and Biblical worldview.
  • Children will be taught a Christian way of living and playing together, interpreted through the teachings of Jesus Christ.
  • They will learn to think of their world as given by God because of His perfect love for them.
  • Each child develops differently and comes to school with a unique set of experiences; our teachers thoughtfully consider these individual needs as they daily work with students.
