Christ School has a rich history of publications dating back to "The Galax Leaf," Susan Wetmore's 1900 newsletter. Today, The Galax, Christ School's magazine, is published twice a year by the Communications and Advancement Offices and features news of the school, alumni events, and class notes. Its name honors a traditional school emblem, the galax plant, which is indigenous to Western North Carolina. The Struan, Christ School's literary magazine, is created annually by a student-run editorial board and faculty advisor and contains writing and art from students and faculty. Its name derives from the Struan Plantation, the 1855 ancestral home of Susan Wetmore that was part of the land deeded to the Rev. and Mrs. Thomas Wetmore to found Christ School in 1900.
