News Flash - new tuition payment process


Superintendent Rebecca Hammel has asked all schools in the Nashville Diocese to use the FACTS Tuition Management service and to move to FACTS for financial aid need assessment. She's asking us to make this change for the 2019-2020 school year. We'll be using FACTS for this year's pre-registration/enrollment process. Some families may already be familiar with FACTS and already have a FACTS account for tuition payments at Father Ryan High School.

Our goal is to use FACTS to make paying tuition flexible and efficient while retaining the personal touch that Dawnne Stephens has made a hallmark of our business office experience. 

To get started, follow this link to start the process by creating your account,
or logging into your previously existing account:

Celebrate Calm Workshops

Kids listen the first time. No defiance, no disrespect, no yelling. No whining, no tantrum, no fighting. Get kids off screens without drama. Stress free mornings, homework time, bedtime. Might sound like the Cleavers from Leave it to Beaver, but Kirk and Casey Martin say they can help you make it happen at your house.

We'll have two Celebrate Calm workshops in 2019: 
Tuesday, February 12th, 7-9pm
Wednesday, February 13th, 8am-10am
No entrance fee, no registration required!
And it's laugh-out-loud funny!

Screenagers is about the impact of the digital age on children and how to help them
minimize harmful effects and find balance. After seeing the film, people tell us that they feel
more confident and better equipped to establish balance around screen time. Come for the film; stay for the moderated discussion with other concerned parents. 

Our Screenagers Event takes place in the CKS Gym on Thursday, March 28th at 7pm. No admission, no registration. Come and bring a friend. 

Welcome to Christ the King School!

Christ the King School serves God by educating students within the Catholic tradition of faith, academic excellence, love, and service.

Christ the King is a PreK-4 through Grade 8 Catholic school that lives this mission daily by valuing each child’s unique gifts, working to help individuals reach their potential spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. We accomplish this in a community where students feel a sense of belonging, purpose, and personal safety. The faculty and staff regard their roles as learning leaders who model the motivation, curiosity, respect, and compassion expected of students.

Our mission as a Catholic elementary school is to educate young people in a faith-filled environment that builds discipleship with catechesis, prayer, and worship. Christ the King embodies its vision to establish a strong foundation for academic excellence through attentive instruction and carefully planned application of skills and knowledge, supported by integration of technology and community resources.

CKS offers a variety of opportunities beyond the foundational curriculum to enrich students’ minds, spirits, and bodies. Every grade participates in art, music, Spanish, technology, library, and physical education classes. These classes introduce and reinforce vital skills for students such as teamwork, responsibility, creativity, cooperation, and global awareness. Our graduates have become leaders in the larger community. The school continues to prepare and nurture students to be well-rounded individuals, equipped with honorable habits of heart and mind, who light the way for their generation.
