Where will you make your mark?

The Angelus (Yearbook)

Journalism is a class which specializes in designing the school’s yearbook, The Angelus. Taken for a single semester or for the full year, this class extends academic credit to students in grades 9-12. Staff members can opt to take this class for a grade (which will average into their GPA) or Pass / Fail (which does not factor into GPA calculations). Students in this class are trained to complete all of the necessary requirements in the production of a book page (taking the photographs, editing them, designing the page layout, writing copy, and editing their finished work). Since the book is done entirely online, training is provided for all necessary skills in desktop publishing.

The club's motto: "If you want it, we probably have it. But if we don't, we'll get it..."

Supper Club

The Supper Club is organized around monthly outings to a wide array of area restaurants, allowing students to take advantage of Asheville's reputation as a mecca for foodies.

Triple Threat Club

The Triple Threat Club identifies the students who have achieved Triple Threat status in the weight room for the current school year. In order to achieve this status, a student must lift the minimum weight for all three lifts, back squat, bench press and power clean in the presence of Coach Parham, the Strength Coach. These three lifts are the cornerstone of all strength programs. The required weights are adjusted for both the size and grade of the student. All Christ School students are eligible to attempt the lifts throughout the school year, provided they have routinely performed the lifts and have demonstrated proper form. Once a student has earned this status, he is encouraged to improve his performances on all the lifts during the year.

Veterans Service Club


YoungLife is a worldwide, non-profit, Christian, non-denominational, parachurch ministry. Although YoungLife has many facets, their original ministry has been directed toward high school students. YoungLife’s mission is to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and help them grow in their faith.

YoungLife at Christ School combines with YoungLife at a few local high schools and meets weekly, in the evenings, for Club at an off-campus location. All students are allowed to participate but must be in good academic standing in order to miss evening study hall on that particular day. For students that want to dig a little deeper into the Bible and look more closely at the life of Jesus, YoungLife has a small group Bible study, known as Campaigners, that meets regularly. Contact Steve Sandman for more information.
