Our Philosophy

Christ Church Day School is committed to nurturing a love of learning while providing a rich and challenging curriculum. We believe that teachers and students should be engaged actively, creatively and thoughtfully in the classroom, in our natural world, and in our community at large. Christ Church Day School blends experiential learning with research-based practices. Teachers aim to harness children's natural curiosity and stimulate their moral compass while engaging them in developmentally appropriate, joyful, and meaningful learning. Beginning with the belief that children are inherently good and infinitely capable, the school is designed to support and enrich the unique aspects of each child.
