screenagers movie

Screenagers is about the impact of the digital age on children and how to help them minimize harmful effects and find balance. After seeing the film, people tell us that they feel more confident and better equipped to establish balance around screen time. Come for the film; stay for the moderated discussion with other concerned parents. More on the film at the Screenagers movie website. Our Screenagers Event takes place in the CKS Gym on Thursday, March 28th at 7pm. No admission, no registration. Come and bring a friend. 

Welcome to Christ the King School!

Christ the King School serves God by educating students within the Catholic tradition of
faith, academic excellence, love, and service.

Christ the King is a PreK-4 through Grade 8 Catholic school that lives this mission daily by valuing each child’s unique gifts, working to help individuals reach their potential spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. We accomplish this in a community where students feel a sense of belonging, purpose, and personal safety. The faculty and staff regard their roles as learning leaders who model the motivation, curiosity, respect, and compassion expected of students.

Our mission as a Catholic elementary school is to educate young people in a faith-filled environment that builds discipleship with catechesis, prayer, and worship. Christ the King embodies its vision to establish a strong foundation for academic excellence through attentive instruction and carefully planned application of skills and knowledge, supported by integration of technology and community resources.

CKS offers a variety of opportunities beyond the foundational curriculum to enrich students’ minds, spirits, and bodies. Every grade participates in art, music, Spanish, technology, library, and physical education classes. These classes introduce and reinforce vital skills for students such as teamwork, responsibility, creativity, cooperation, and global awareness. Our graduates have become leaders in the larger community. The school continues to prepare and nurture students to be well-rounded individuals, equipped with honorable habits of heart and mind, who light the way for their generation.
