St. Christopher School
Tel: (215) 673-5787
The faculty of our school shares the mission of Jesus with the students placed in its care by helping them live as responsible, Catholic witnesses in the 21st century.
This witness is actualized when everyone respects the dignity of each person, creates a spirit of hospitality, and strives to witness Catholic behavior in thoughts, words, and actions.
St. Christopher School, staffed by a lay faculty, serves the community by providing a safe and caring learning environment supported by a cooperative, supportive, Catholic family atmosphere at home so that all students can experience an enriching and value-based education.
In fact, the faculty believes that to succeed in the classroom, the backing of homes where virtue is practiced, serious study is encouraged, and the authority of the school is supported is necessary.
