Christ the King Catholic School is a wonderfully rich learning community. Underlying our mission of academic excellence and formation of Christian values lies a vital premise: that every child has unique strengths, talents and interests that we try to encourage and develop. At CKS, we dedicate ourselves to an educational approach that nurtures the 'whole child,' in an environment of spiritual development, academic excellence, moral values, service and respect for one another. This cohesive, diverse, vibrant school community is truly a gift to Catholic education!
WE are a Catholic educational community focused on developing life-long learners. WE provide a rigorous, relevant curriculum. WE embrace diversity. WE live Gospel values. WE serve our community. WE celebrate stewardship. WE are Christ the King Catholic School.
The spiritual atmosphere within Christ the King School is designed to build upon the foundation laid by parents who encourage their families to pray and worship together. We recognize parents as being the principal educators of the faith for their children, and we strive to continue that education at school. Our purpose includes fostering a personal relationship with Jesus and living a life grounded in the Gospel message.
Christ the King graduates consistently earn acceptance to prestigious Catholic schools. Our graduates currently attend: St. Louis University High, Nerinx Hall, DeSmet, Rosati-Kain, Christian Brothers College High School, Incarnate Word, Cor Jesu, Bishop DuBourg and St. Joseph's Academy. CKS’ 2018 graduates earned these percentiles on their 8th Grade standardized tests: 95th percentile in Language Arts (Reading, Vocabulary, Written Expression, Conventions of Writing); 96th percentile in Math Computation.
For three, consecutive years, Christ the King has earned the honor of being a No Place for Hate School, acknowledged by our local Anti-Defamation League. This honor is due to the many varied, enriching programs for students, parents and faculty that enforce our core values of embracing diversity and celebrating community.
Our student body comes from 20 ZIP Codes and represents many ethnic, economic and religious backgrounds. Children of all faiths are welcome, and 27% of our student body is non-Catholic.
