Christ the King School is a special place of education. It is led by faculty and staff who are always thinking and always learning, and it is enlivened by students who grow in their faith, in their studies, in their concern for others.

Your support ensures that this kind of thinking and this kind of growth continues at a school that for more than 80 years has been a leader in Catholic education. To make a gift before this year’s campaign ends on June 30, click here.
