  • The Mission of St. Christopher School is to be a faith community of living witnesses to the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.
  • Inspired by the example of St. Christopher, our patron saint, we seek to bear Christ to one another in our school, parish and community.
  • We recognize that each child entrusted to our care is created in the image and likeness of God.
  • To that end we are committed to creating a safe learning environment that fosters academic excellence as well as spiritual, moral and social development. St. Christopher School is dedicated to creating life-long learners.

School Notes

  • St. Christopher's Parochial School was founded in 1925 under the aegis of the Sisters of St. Joseph. Today, under the direction of a dedicated, professional religious and lay faculty, St. Christopher's continues its tradition of excellence. Recognizing each student as unique, we strive to develop the whole person through a spiritual, academic, physical and aesthetic education. We employ creative, innovative and practical methods in our teaching. It is our belief that we must prepare our students to be critical-thinkers, responsible, loving, service-oriented citizens in preparation for the years to come and eternity. Thus we strive to fulfill Jesus' command, "to love our neighbor as ourselves".
