School Notes

  • We believe:
  • -- Each person is a child of God deserving of respect.A high quality Catholic education develops the whole child spiritually, emotionally, academically, and socially -- including the opportunity to develop meaningful relationships, communication and leadership skills, and personal responsibilities.
  • -- Education and faith formation are most effective through continuous collaboration and mutual support between the school, the family, and the community.Instruction and assessment must provide for the needs and abilities of students.
  • -- Community service is integral to the development of students` awareness of the needs of others and their responsibility to the world in which they live.
  • -- Students are motivated by a committed and well-educated faculty, administration, and staff who are enthusiastic in their work and excited to share their knowledge while nurturing each child`s individual differences.
  • -- Our students` education is enhanced through research, ongoing education, and implementation of best practices by faculty, administration and staff.
  • -- Children should explore, experiment, problem-solve, and invent in their everyday learning.

School Reviews

St. Christopher school is the best decision I made for my children. I only wish we had started school there instead of another Catholic school in town. St. Christopher welcomed our children with open arms and quickly began challenging them and loving them like no other school had. I was also made to feel welcomed. The principal took extra time with me and even made a personal call to me about a week after my children began. She praised my children and made comments as if she had known them forever. She and the teachers took the time to get to know my children and truly showed that they cared. St. Christopher School is the best! If you are looking for a warm loving environment along with rigorous academics and great values, get yourself over to St. Chris! I can't say enough about the quality of this school.
