Generous gifts from families and friends of St. Christopher School allow us to meet the difference between tuition income and the actual cost of operating the school.  These gifts support our operating budget, help us to build our endowment fund, and provide scholarships for children who might otherwise not be able to attend St. Christopher.  We are grateful for each and every gift we receive.
