Founded in 1900, Christ School is an all-boys college preparatory boarding school for 300 students in grades 8 through 12.  The school is affiliated with the Episcopal Church and sits on 500 scenic acres, nine miles south of Asheville, North Carolina.  The school’s mission is to “produce educated men of good character, prepared for both scholastic achievement in college and productive citizenship in adulty society.”  We do this through programming and relationships built around our Four Pillars: Leadership, Academic Rigor, Spirituality, and the Dignity of Manual Labor.  Students come from 18 states and six foreign countries to attend Christ School.  All world faiths are welcome in our community.

The teachers, coaches and advisors of Christ School find purpose and meaning in our work with the young Greenies in our care.  The thread that runs through every responsibility and opportunity we encounter is an abiding belief in the power of strong relationships to shape and sustain healthy, successful young men.
