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

Why CES?

Small Class Size

With an average class size of 10-12 students, teachers individualize instruction for their students and develop and sustain close relationships with students and their families.

An Outstanding Faculty

CES teachers are dedicated to the art of teaching and committed to their own professional development. 73% of our teachers have Master's degrees and our Head of School holds a Doctorate degree in education.

A Family School

Our programs engage parents and families in our educational program and in our broader community. Our decisions strongly consider the needs of our parents and their input. Through the activities of the Parents Association and other aspects of school life, parents participate and contribute in many ways.

LIFT: Learning Integration for Tomorrow

A Values-Centric Education on the Digital Frontier. LIFT is a powerful, 21st century curriculum delivery model developed by Christ Episcopal School and Johns Hopkins University's Center for Technology in Education.

Innovative Curriculum

Each year, our teachers engage in professional growth programs locally and across the country. From the essentials of Language Arts and Mathematics to extension activities and "specials," teachers continually refine materials and methods to ensure best practices and classroom effectiveness.

Daily Chapel

Each day includes a spiritual service that affirms our faith in the Episcopal traditions and the values that carry our students through the day.

Daily Physical Education

CES is dedicated to educating the mind, body and spirit. Students engage in daily PE as every young mind needs daily exercise.

Cardinal Character Education

Named for our cardinal mascot, our character education program reinforces the thoughtful, respectful interactions that are an important emphasis in all aspects of school life. The program is active, structured and woven throughout every school day from the Preschool through Grade 8.

Service Learning

Our Service Learning program teaches children the value of giving back. Our curriculum and service opportunities reinforce one another, leading to deeper reflection. Students engage in service to local, regional, and global communities, connecting them to a purpose larger than themselves.
