About CES

head of christ episcopal school walking with students outside school entranceChrist Episcopal School offers children a unique educational experience. Our program combines the challenge of a rigorous academic curriculum with the support and teachings of a caring, Christian community. Our goal is to foster the development of the whole child: mind, body and spirit.

CES's program focuses on helping each student develop a solid academic foundation, and grow in body and spirit. Class sizes are small, which allows students to receive individual attention, meet the challenge of high academic standards and build self-confidence in an environment where excellence is the norm. At CES, we are committed to honoring the uniqueness in every child, providing an outstanding academic program, encouraging children to develop healthy, strong bodies and nourishing their spirits.

At CES we are also committed to cultivating a diverse community that embraces a spirit of inclusiveness. We welcome and respect students and families of all faith backgrounds, while maintaining an intentionally Episcopalian identity. In an era when dialogue about moral and spiritual values are avoided in most schools, our dedicated teachers and staff step beyond academics to nurture the development of the students' moral foundation, sense of integrity, and awareness of their spiritual nature.

Our students participate in comprehensive service learning program. In addition, the school-wide Honor Code and chapel program support the community’s expectation for high standards of conduct

Welcomed, safe, and comfortable in this structured and caring environment, CES students have the freedom to grow, not only intellectually, but physically, personally and spiritually. Our students flourish in both their studies and in their relationships with others.

"Inspiring Minds to Learn, Hearts to Love, Hands to Serve." This is the essence of a CES education.
