GREAT JOURNEYS BEGIN
AT THE RIVER!
Our Great Journeys curriculum is a breath of fresh air. It is bold thinking based on research. It is a method of teaching and learning that emphasizes critical-thinking, excites the imagination, uses all five senses, and inspires the explorer in all of us. It is a three-dimensional and real-life experience.
Because some of the most powerful lessons are learned outside the classroom, the Chesapeake Bay watershed is an important component of all CCS classes; science, of course, but also English, math, history and foreign language. We know that combining the classroom with our region's natural resources makes learning fun and lessons stick.
Christchurch is the only school offering a college-prep program which includes:
* regional and global immersion trips
* deep understanding of sustainability issues
* regular exploration of the Chesapeake Bay watershed
* on-campus, oyster aquaculture
Teaching that lasts. Skills that travel. Learning that stays with you. In a place where character matters and the curriculum is alive.
Christchurch School has been named by Virginia Living Magazine as "one of the most innovative programs in VA" in recognition of our oyster restoration work.
|NOTES ON THE OPENING OF SCHOOL |
to CCS parents from Jeb Byers, Headmaster
"...the students have been amazing in their good spirits, cooperation, willingness to engage, and most particularly, their reaching out in friendship to one another. Students are extablishing bonds on teams, on dorm, in class, in the dining hall, student center, and in the games around campus during free time. We faculty members are very pleased and energized about the way the year is beginning.
This is a most kindly place in my experience and for our students. I hope your children will enjoy a fantastic year and help Christchurch as a school and community succeed in its mission. I would be happy to answer your questions at any time, and look forward to seeing you on campus, in person, any time. Meanwhile, together we have this project - your children, our students, and we are committed to keeping them safe, healthy and growing in all good ways into their roles as productive citizens in their families, communities, nation, and the world."
