We recognize that our relationship with one another and with the wider world should be guided by our conviction that all people are made in the image of God and are of infinite value.
We welcome students and families of all religious or non-religious perspectives, and will encourage you to express your own beliefs.
Our theology curriculum is intentionally integrated into our Humanities Department courses, in order to provide students with opportunities to reflect on questions of meaning and purpose in a variety of contexts.
We worship together in the Episcopal tradition each Wednesday morning, in St. Peter's Chapel.
We don't tell our students what to believe. Although you'll become familiar with the Christian tradition through our worship, core values and community ethos, our goal as a school is not to indoctrinate, but to teach you to participate, think and reflect for yourself.
We'll help you develop your own moral compass in a confusing world, by centering our work and play around our core values of curiosity, acceptance, integrity, respect, kindness, and self-confidence.
What being an Episcopal school means to us:
- Each person is made in the image of God, and thus, is of infinite value and uniquely called by God to lead a life of purpose, integrity, and freedom within the bounds of love.
- Central to this unique call on each person's life is the pursuit of spiritual growth in mind, body, and spirit.
- There are multiple and diverse ways in which each individual pursues spiritual growth and makes meaning in the world, and so as a community we value and provide for a pluralism of spiritual expression in word and practice.
- Central to our common life as a community is a commitment to the corporate worship of God and the provision of various programs for spiritual growth.
- As a community, we are open and accepting to people of any religion, national origin, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation.
A Commitment to Inclusivity
At the heart of our commitment to inclusivity is our Episcopal identity. We are dedicated to building a safe and healthy environment for all our students. Our goal is to respect each person at Christchurch by recognizing the opportunities that accompany our differences in race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability, religion, gender identity, and socioeconomic status. We aim to support and celebrate the lives lived at Christchurch by listening to one another’s stories with acceptance, curiosity, and respect.
