What are academics like at Christ School?
Christ School is academically rigorous and challenges each student appropriately. We offer 24 honors courses and 20 Advanced Placement courses in addition to many standard classes. There are 43 teaching faculty, 65% of whom hold advanced degrees. Small class sizes with a 6:1 student to teacher ratio ensure every boy receives the academic support he needs.
Over the last five years Christ School has produced more National Merit Semi-Finalists than any other school in Western North Carolina. Find out more at about academics at Christ School.
What colleges do Christ School graduates attend?
Christ School graduates attend schools ranging from large universities to small colleges across the world. From Harvard to Duke, UCLA, and the University of St Andrews, the College Guidance Office works with each boy and their parents to find the perfect higher education fit.
Which meals are provided for day students?
Day students can eat all of their meals at Christ School—breakfast, lunch, and dinner, 7 days a week.
What sports and afternoon activities are offered?
Every student is required to take part in an afternoon activity. That could be a sport—we field 19 teams across 10 sports—or an extracurricular like Christ School Broadcast Network (CSBN), Outdoor Program, theater, and others. Find out more about Christ School's athletic offerings here.
What do boarding students do on the weekends?
The Student Activities office ensures that there’s never a dull moment for the boys. On weekends the team offers trips that include hikes, community service, Walmart supply runs, professional and college sporting events, concerts, and more. The cost of these activities is covered by the school to ensure that all students can participate. See Student Activity offerings here.
Do the boys have to wear a uniform?
Christ School doesn’t have a uniform, but there is a dress code. Find out more about the dress code at this link.
What is a 5-day boarder?
The 5-day boarding program allows students who live within 60 miles to board during the weekdays and spend their weekends at home.
How often do the boys interact with girls?
Events with girls range from organized ones like dances and dinners with sister schools, as well as impromptu weekend trips and campus sporting events with girls from the Asheville area. Christ School believes boys act more naturally around their female peers when having an activity or event to plan and participate in together.
