At Christ the King School, we offer a positive educational experience that will give your child a strong start on their academic path. Beginning in PreK-3, children work on thinking and cognitive skills, language and literacy, fine motor development, social skills and physical development through daily exercise. On nice days, the children receive real world instruction outdoors. We look forward to taking field trips, like the one they took to Akron Falls just before the pandemic hit. During that trip they focused on the difference between living and non-living determinants, as well as conservation and other concepts. We just opened our brand new playground too! The happy squeals of joy are priceless.

Christ the King School has been educating youth for over 90 years.  The school is doing well and thriving. We have a dedicated staff, wonderful families and students, and exceptional curriculum that together allow every student to shine. CTK is a STREAM (science, technology, religion, engineering, arts and mathematics) school.  Only a handful of Catholic K-8 schools in our area have been able to become accredited by the Middle States Commission on Elementary and Secondary Schools. We became accredited in 2019 which validates our commitment to helping every child reach their full potential.

Many sports to choose from at an early age.

The core curriculum teachers are with the kids all through Middle School. They don't have to spend the month of September figuring out the children's aptitude. They know them from Day 1.

Reading in church. Start on stage in the 3rd grade with the play.
There are no cuts in the Arts.
