Christ Episcopal School
A co-ed independent Episcopal School serving students in preschool - grade 8 in historic Rockville, MD

Cardinal Character Program

At Christ Episcopal School, we are all proud of the manner of conduct the students practice. Each teacher, parent and student is committed to uphold this high level of behavior by respecting the feelings, rights and property of others. At all times, we expect our students to be courteous, kind, honest and respectful when dealing with teachers, the staff, the clergy, parents, visitors and schoolmates. Conduct that is loud, abusive, rowdy or thoughtless is not acceptable. We expect compassion to be shown towards all at CES.

Appropriate behavior is essential to preserve the necessary order in our community so that learning can take place. Students are taught the importance of consideration for others which allows learning to occur. Each student is accountable for his or her behavior.
