Golf at Piankatank River Golf Club
Golf is as much a discipline as it is a game. Students and parents who are looking for a high school golf experience that stands out from other boarding schools don’t need to look any further than Christchurch School. Our program is well-established and has a proven track record of success. We apply the same fastidious approach to helping young golfers develop their skills as we do in every aspect of our athletics and academics. Here on our beautiful campus in Virginia, you will find a private college-prep environment in which students can thrive and become the leaders of the future.
How Athletics Fit Our Mission
Our golf program stands out from other boarding schools’ because we don’t see athletics merely an extracurricular activity. Just as they learn in the classroom, we believe our students can use sports to develop positive qualities that will stay with them their entire lives. For example, honing a student’s golf game instills him or her with values such as hard work, perseverance, sportsmanship, and teamwork.
The coaches who teach our students the game are also faculty members who live on campus and serve as dorm parents. This means they get to know each student as a person on and off the course — not just by their average scores. We’re proud of the fact that these relationships strengthen the sense of community throughout our campus.
We’re also committed to helping our student body learn the importance of physical fitness. Taking care of their bodies as well as their minds is key to living a happier, healthier life and ensures our students will enjoy greater success in everything they do. We provide comprehensive strength training as well as an endurance running program. We believe living an active lifestyle is crucial not only for physical health but also for gaining the confidence to succeed.
The Christchurch Difference
Located in a picturesque setting along the Rappahannock River in Virginia not far from Washington, D.C., we offer an ideal setting for young people to discover who they are. We serve a diverse student body in grades 9 through 12. Our 6:1 student-to-faculty ratio ensures no one’s needs are overlooked. We strive to maintain a strong, supportive community where everyone feels comfortable.
