The school is great academically and the athletics are too! Each student is required to participate in a Fall, Winter, and Spring activity. This creates a wonderful school environment with student participation. The teachers and administration are very invested and interested in each student's success. I will definitely be prepared for college when I graduate.

When I first came to Christ School, I was awestruck by the natural beauty of the campus. The mountains enclosed the campus, helping to provide serenity and seclusiveness. The best aspect of Christ School is that since it is a boarding school, kids from all over the nation and even the world come to school there. I've met kids from Germany, China, and even Moldova, each with different stories and knowledge to share. This diversity has made me a more well-rounded person and knowledgable person. Unfortunately, I feel as if Christ School doesn't accept arts and music as much as athletics. I have played violin my entire life and find that there are not many opportunities at Christ School to continue this passion.
Christ School is more diverse than you would expect. The Alumni and Administration are very "old school" (The school is over 100 years old.) But the students and teachers are much more broad minded and come from a variety of backgrounds. The campus is beautiful, the food is great, the dorms are average, the facilities are wonderful. The level of communication with parents set me at ease immediately. I'm glad I sent my son there.
