Admission

Our Viewbook



"Many students begin high school with a self-understanding that's narrow - 'I'm a lacrosse player,' 'I'm a good student,' or sometimes, 'I just don't fit in.' At Christchurch, we help students realize their potential isn't limited to just one box. The Christchurch hallmark isn't our unique curriculum, our many sports championships, or our beautiful campus. It's the graduate who leaves Christchurch a larger person than when he or she came in, a graduate who can do well academically, professionally, and socially at any college, in any profession, or at any place in the world. That's the real goal of a Christchurch education."

Academics



At Christchurch School, students discover skills, aptitudes, and talents they didn't know they had.

The ultimate payoff from a Christchurch education is more than just earning a diploma or being accepted into the right college.

Christchurch School is the place and the experience where your best possible future begins. 



"It's about deepening our connection with and understanding the international community. It's integrating international trips with classrooms. It's about exploring and pursuing opportunities to connect with other parts of the world in meaningful, curriculum-driven ways."  
  -  Aaron Alter, Director of Global Education

Why Boarding School?

"Boarding school students are better prepared for college than students who attend private day schools and public school ... boarding school students also make faster progress in their careers. The reason for these results may be a direct result of essentially being immersed in an academic environment full time."
