The Christ Episcopal School community gathers throughout the year for a variety of events that build relationships, celebrate and support the school’s mission, and foster engagement with alumni, current students and their families, and our church community.

Grandparents and Special Friends Day (November)

Held just before Thanksgiving, Grandparents and Special Friends Day gives our visitors an intimate look at the school in action and valuable classroom time with a grandchild or student with whom there is a special relationship. This morning event also includes a delicious breakfast and a musical performance by the students in the chapel. Click here for details about this year's event!


Annual Auction and Gala (March)

The Annual Auction and Gala is our school's largest annual fundraising event. It brings together the extended Christ Episcopal School and Church community for a night of fun and festivity. The money raised at the Auction helps offset the cost of educating each child at CES and allows us to continue offering need-based tuition assistance.

Annual Golf Classic (May)

The Annual Golf Classic gives CES families, alumni, and friends of the school the opportunity to compete in a friendly golf tournament. At least one member of each golf foursome is a current parent, alumni, alumni parent, staff, or alumni staff member, and each foursome competes on behalf of a CES class - their own graduating class or their child’s class. The winner of the Cardinal Cup receives recognition in our newsletter and social media, and their name is inscribed on The Cardinal Cup trophy, which perpetually resides at the school. Proceeds of the event benefit the school’s need-based tuition assistance program. Learn more about the Golf Classic here.
