The Christ Episcopal School Mission

The philosophy of Christ Episcopal School reflects the reasons for its origin: to provide a superior academic opportunity within the framework of a warm and nurturing Christian environment.

Each child is special, an individual. Therefore, at the heart of Christ Episcopal School is the belief that the development of the intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of each child must be tailored, to the greatest extent possible, to the individual child.

We seek to give our children an awareness of God’s love and, through such an awareness, to foster those ideals - self-esteem, independence, and self-motivation - which will prepare each child for the continuing educational process.

Our goal is to prepare our children for living in God’s world, with all their rights and privileges, duties and responsibilities.

Founded in 1984, Christ Episcopal School is a co-educational, prekindergarten through 12th grade school of 576 students. The campus is located in Covington, Louisiana, and encompasses 36 acres in an Arcadian setting, offering a pleasant and stimulating learning environment for its students and faculty. Christ Episcopal School continues in the tradition of independent schools and that of Christ Episcopal Church, which since its founding in 1846 has maintained a commitment to the educational and civic life of St. Tammany Parish.
