|Christchurch School has evolved dramatically over the years: There are new buildings on campus, we have a revolutionizing new curriculum, and fresh faces can be found in the classrooms and on the playing fields. But that doesn’t mean that this is no longer your school. Your legacy lives on in every school-wide cookout, every triumphant sports team, and every graduation ceremony. Christchurch School has evolved into the dynamic and progressive institution that it is today because of your contributions as a student and as an alumnus. We welcome your input and encourage your involvement in our steadfast dedication to exceptional education and personal development. Take the time to explore our website and refresh your connection with Christchurch. Also, keep us informed on what’s happening in your life – visit the Alumni Community to update your contact information and reconnect with classmates.|
|It's Earl Rimbey '12, Up the Middle!|
Earl Rimbey '12 is making his (and our!) name known in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference soccer world. The frosh midfielder #20 helped the Lynchburg Hornets score a victory against Virginia Wesleyan, securing a home first-round game for the Hornets in the ODAC tournament on Saturday. Lynchburg coach Chris Yeager had this to say about the Seahorse standout, "... some huge play from Earl Rimbey and Daniel Jobrack up the middle. They were men out there today and they are just freshmen... that's been huge for us ... "
|Things RAMp Up for Teddy Okereafor '12|
As the fall season cools down and basketball season heats up, be sure to follow Seahorse Teddy Okereafor as he takes the court for the Virginia Commonwealth University RAMs. Wednesday, at VCU's Media Day, Coach Shaka Smart referred to Okereafor as "probably our most improved player." He says that Okereafor has embraced his role as a floor general, and he hopes to see him spell the starting point guard Darius Theus on a more regular basis.
|Pat Young '12 in the News ... Again|
This time it was Matt Kinnear of "Inside Lacrosse" who confirmed what we've known all along ... that Pat Young '12 is a very special lacrosse player. In his notes from Drexel's fallball "PlayDay" Kinnear got right to it and said, "Freshman Pat Young stood out for UMBC. He was able to hit shots from outside, initiate, and he was out there on defense as well."

Mr. and Mrs. Byers request the pleasure of your company ...
As we enter the last few weeks of the year, the Christchurch School Class of 2013 is enjoying the rewards of senior spring. A much beloved and favorite tradition is that of dining with Mr. and Mrs. Byers in small groups. This is an elegant affair recalled with great fondness by alumni.

|EARTH DAY 2013|
EVERY day is Earth Day at CCS
Today may be the day that the world celebrates Earth Day, but at Christchurch School, EVERY day is Earth Day. Sustainability is an integral part of our mission as a school, and students and faculty follow best-practices across the curriculum and throughout every area of school life. As a community, we are mindful of waste, conserve energy, recyle, re-invent, raise oysters to clean our river and save the bay, and more. As a school, we apply the McDonough Triangle (ecology, equity, economy) in all that we do to maximize sustainability of resources.
Choose "read more" for a list of Christchurch School's 23 sustainability initiatives.
From our mission: "... part of that education (sound, college-preparatory) includes stewardship of our river and awareness of the broader natural environment so that our students learn to look beyond themselves to their place in the world around them." Learn more.
