For over a decade, Christchurch students have enjoyed our two River and Outdoor
co-curricular programs. The two programs, Living Campus
and River Immersion
, are designed for those students who wish to delve deeper into their connection with the Rappahannock River and our place in its watershed. Living Campus
provides students with hands-on projects that are focused on making posivite impact on the local community and the environment. From organic agriculture to innovative oyster aquaculture, Living Campus
constantly seeks out ways to improve our quaility of life alongside water quality. River Immersion
is designed to explore the natural wonders of our Tidewater region, while building outdoor skills. Here, our students become accomplished canoers, shallow water anglers, explorers, observers, and conservationists. An important feature of this program is its emphasis on enhancing our school's environmental connection to the river.
CO-CURRICULAR PROGRAMS take place each weekday afternoon, from 4-6, and include athletics, community service, performing arts, student leadership, robotics, and outdoor and nature-oriented programs.
STUDENTS PARTICIPATE in three activities per year, a requirement that leads to the discovery of new talents and encourages them to pursue activities outside their comfort zones
