At Christ the King School, we believe that education should inspire and ignite young minds, stimulate a lifelong passion for learning, and impart a solid foundation for success. Our holistic approach to education ensures a well-rounded individual, grounded in knowledge and steeped in the principles on which this great country was founded.
For over half a century, Christ the King School has devoted itself to the nourishment and enrichment of the minds, bodies, and souls of the thousands of children entrusted to us. We have achieved this high-minded purpose through a studied program of academics and spiritual growth. Our ultimate goal is to prepare each child to realize his or her full mental potential, to enlarge his or her spiritual life, and to increase his or her capacity for mutual and self-respect.
We give our students the tools of intellectual inquiry and self-expression. We show them how to interact with fellow students, as well as how to act with respect and love for their fellow human beings. We guide them in distinguishing right from wrong, reinforce the importance of doing what is right, and show them how hard work and moral values strengthen us as we pursue the promise of freedom, and joy of educational excellence. Christ the King students not only build a system of values for themselves, they also become examples to others.
Students are taught to serve your neighbors, as well as the greater community in which we live. We ask that Christ the King families, alumni, and friends join us in this noble calling.
Our Mission Statement
Christ the King School exists as a center of learning where individuals' values are recognized and their God given talents and powers are given responsible direction. Our goals are growth in faith, excellence in education, and development of the unique potentials of each student.
Catholic Faith Based Education
We believe that Christ is the center of our school environment. He is the unseen but ever-present teacher in our classes, the model for our faculty, and inspiration of our children and their parents.
Christ the King School believes in the freedom, value, dignity, and the integrity of its students. Catholic schools integrate faith with learning and with all of life. There is an emphasis on prayer, respect, and the development of Christian behavior. Religion is taught to each student who attends Christ the King School. Catholic textbooks and supplementary material for these classes are approved and recommended by the Diocese of Yakima. Second graders are prepared for the reception of the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Eucharist by their teacher and their parents.
We believe that parents have the primary responsibility for their children's education and therefore expect them to plan an active part in school life. The parish and school community complements the parents' role. Together we work to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ with the guidance of the Holy Sprit.
All students participate in liturgies and prayer services. Liturgies are prepared by students with the help of their teachers. School Masses are held monthly. We invite parents to join the parish school community for these Masses and liturgies.
