About Us

Our History

St. Christopher School opened in September 1955.  The school began with classrooms for grades 1 through 3.  Over the years, the school has grown into a double grade school serving students in grades K-8. 

 

Our campus includes two classrooms each for kindergarten through 8th grade, a learning lab, science lab, gymnasium, library, multipurpose room, playground, and extended care center. 

 

We are blessed to have access to the parish facilities and a beautiful, traditional Catholic church.​
