ABOUT

Since 1957 Christ Church School has been dedicated to welcoming, loving, teaching and inspiring every child that comes through our doors. We have always believed that every child, at every stage of development, is a blessing.

Founded as an outreach of Christ Church United Methodist, our teachers and staff are passionate about not only educating children, but of shepherding every child's heart and walking alongside families on the journey. 

What makes our school unique? We believe that children are spiritual beings, created by God to experience His love in deep relationship with Him. It is through that love that our children come to know and understand that God has created them for a purpose and has uniquely gifted them.

Using the God Centered Model for Spiritual Transformation, we begin each morning in Sacred Circle Time. This is a unique time for every child, infancy to Kindergarten, to hear the Word of God, share, pray together and receive an individual blessing from their teacher or fellow students. It is our goal that during our brief but important time in your child’s life, the stage will be set for a lifetime love of learning built on spiritual transformation.

Our classrooms have an intentionally low, student-teacher ratio. We want each child to receive personal attention and we also want to get to know our children and their families. We follow the Kentucky Early Childhood Standards and offer a rich curriculum that develops children mind, body and spirit. Gym, Music, iPad Technology, our special Handwriting Without Tears Curriculum and Chapel are just some of the many wonderful aspects that make our school unique.
