Welcome to Christ the King School!

I want to take the opportunity to share with you some of our hopes about Christ the King. There are dozens of reasons why parents select Christ the King School. Let me draw your attention to three of them.

First, Christ the King is a private school. That means we can tailor the program to the specific needs and potentials of our particular children. We are proud of our excellent curriculum. Our graduates continually tell us how well prepared they find themselves when they go on to high school and college. We are Accredited with the Michigan Association of Non-Public Schools. We have our own school committee, composed of parents that set the school policies. We also have an active Parent-Teacher Guild that sponsors several family activities. Parents are involved in all aspects of the school, because we believe that school is a direct extension of the home.

Second, we are a Christian school. We believe that God sent Jesus to live among us to save us from death, to show us how to live. Jesus spent his life teaching people—in large crowds, and one-on-one. We want to carry on that mission of Jesus, teaching our own children what we have learned, and creating an atmosphere in which we practice what we preach.

Finally, we are a Catholic School. This does not mean that all of our school families are Catholic, in fact, many are not. But our school remains a part of our parish, as a part of our Church’s call to teach, and a testimony to our desire to serve the community. We teach religion as a part of the day’s curriculum, based on the Holy Scriptures and Christian tradition. We teach the value of prayer, and encourage the children to pray in a variety of ways. We encourage all of our families to attend Sunday Mass at Christ the King whenever they choose to. Once again, welcome to Christ the King! I look forward to meeting you soon.

 

God bless you,

 

Rev. Victor Clore, Pastor
