Christchurch inspires and guides each student's unique journey to self-confidence, purpose, and identity. Within a caring, structured community, students discover their infinite value and develop the skills to become compassionate, successful, and engaged global citizens.

As a community, we aspire:
  • To engage in lifelong learning and the critical use of information. To this end, we are committed to a college preparatory curriculum that is integrated, place-based, and differentiated, designed to enable diverse students to be active learners who make meaning out of the world around them.
  • To lead lives of transformation, both for ourselves and for others. As an Episcopal school, we are committed to fostering self-confidence, purpose, and identity in ourselves as well as spiritually and communally informed responsibility toward others.
  • To have an integral sense of stewardship and sustainability. To this end, we consider long term impacts both in our actions as an institution and in our learning about the world around us. 
  • To lead lives of physical, psychological, and creative integrity based on the awareness of and development of individual strengths. To this end, we are committed to developing active lifestyles, healthy minds, and creative and artistic expression through co-curricular programs that offer breadth of experience and the choice of depth.
  • To engage in personal reflection as well as relation with one another. To this end, we are committed to providing time and opportunity to support meaningful interaction.
  • To be aware of and actively engaged with the international community. To this end, we are committed to building curricular and co-curricular programs that foster a global understanding of learning and living.
