Early Education Opportunities at CKS

The philosophy and values of CKS call us to provide an outstanding education that integrates Gospel values into every aspect of the intellectual, spiritual, physical, emotional, and social growth of each child. We encourage our students to discover and to develop their God-given gifts and to become people of character who possess a love for learning and a zest for life. We foster leadership, community, and service, while providing a challenging academic program in a nurturing environment. As we journey forward in the twenty-first century, we adapt to new challenges and reassess our curriculum in light of solid educational research while retaining our commitment to excellence in Catholic education.

Serving learners from three years old through 8th grade, our comprehensive curriculum focuses on the development of the whole child; body, mind and spirit. Christ the King School has a faculty and staff of 38 dedicated professionals. Our average class size is 22 with classroom teaching assistants in all grades. Our middle school, grades 6-8, is departmentalized. Our faculty includes specialist teachers for art, French, music, PE, and technology. Math and reading specialists are available to support student learning at all levels. We are committed to providing our students with a safe, caring, 21st century learning environment.

Parent involvement is a defining component of our school environment. We truly value this partnership and encourage families to work, to pray, and to celebrate with us. There are many ways to be involved, and parents share their time and talent through a variety of activities: fund raising activities, PTO events, assisting in classroom special events, and taking part in the many activities of parish and school life.

I invite you join us in this joyous journey.
