We believe that Christ is the center of our school environment. He is the unseen, but ever-present, teacher in our classes, the model for our faculty and inspiration of our children and their parents. Christ the King Catholic School believes in the freedom, value, dignity and integrity of its students. Catholic schools integrate faith with learning and with all of life. There is an emphasis on prayer, respect and the development of Christian behavior. Religion is taught to each student who attends Christ the King School. Catholic textbooks and supplementary material for these classes are approved and recommended by the Diocese of Yakima. Second graders are prepared for the reception of the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Eucharist by their teacher and their parents. We believe that parents have the primary responsibility for their children's education, and therefore expect them to play an active part in school life. The parish and school community complements the parents' role. Together we work to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. All students participate in liturgies and prayer services. Liturgies are prepared by students with the help of their teachers. School Masses are held weekly. We invite parents to join the parish school community for these Masses and liturgies.
