Our traditions encompass being a coeducational Episcopal boarding and day school with an academically diverse student population of 200 college-bound students in grades 9 - 12.
We believe strongly in being a mission-driven community. Our teachers know our mission and believe in it, and try to live it everyday. Prospective faculty members should embrace our mission, values and aspirations and want to live and work with students of many different kinds. Prospective teachers should also be committed to our progressive approach to education, which uses a highly relational, mastery, and place-based approach to build competencies and make meaningful connections so that learning is relevant. More details about our innovative curriculum--as well as our co-curricular programs, which include successful athletics and place-based outdoor immersion programs--are available on this website.
Situated on the banks of the Rappahannock River in rural Tidewater, Virginia, Christchurch is near to the village of Urbanna and the towns of Gloucester and Kilmarnock.
