Mission Statement

As a ministry of Christ the King Parish, Christ the King School upholds the teaching of Jesus Christ and the doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church. Christ the King School nurtures the development of all students through the journey of faith, academics and physical growth in an atmosphere that encourages them to recognize their strengths, overcome their weaknesses with the opportunity to reach their potential-spiritually and academically.

History

The Sisters of St. Joseph and the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany, NY, have contributed to Christ the King’s school over the years. The Sisters of St. Joseph taught from 1929-1943. Sister Anne Patrice and Sister Frederic, S.S.J., were teachers during the schools first year. Deeply appreciative of the Sisters, who provided a value-based education for their children, mothers would often make lunches and provide transportation for them. The Franciscan Sisters of Allegany, NY taught at the school from 1943 until the early 2000's. Past principal, Sr. Rosa Mystica still resides in our convent, although she is assigned elsewhere.

The current principal, Mr. Samuel T. Zalacca, helps make the school community feel like a family, dedicated to superior education and spiritual guidance. Today, the Church of Christ the King seeks to educate the children not only through the school, but also through its Religious Education program. With the increased activities of the Youth Council, the parish is ensuring that the young are taught highly valued Catholic traditions of service, understanding, compassion, discipline, and above all, a reverence for God and His Church.
