Getting Involved


What is Parent Council?

All parents and legal guardians of present Christ School students are automatically members of the Christ School Parent Council. The objectives of the Parent Council are to establish a helpful two-way communication between the parents of Christ School and the administration, to foster a relationship between each student’s family and the School that will benefit the student and help the School fulfill its mission, and to seek ways in which parents can be directly involved in making the students’ experiences at the School positive and productive.

The Parent Council helps promote Christ School to the general public, assists in securing financial support of parents for the School, assists in the recruiting of qualified students for the School, and in general, is an active and involved part of the Christ School community.

The governing body that directs the activities of the Parent Council is the Executive Committee, consisting of one day parent and one boarding parent per form, president, and communications liaison. The Parent Council meets once annually on the Christ School campus during Parents' Weekend in October and also coordinates the creation of various other committees that work to accomplish the objectives of the Parent Council.
