1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
Our focus is revolved around the health of the Chesapeake Bay especially the Rappahannock River. We have a Cans for Oyster drive where we plant oyster seeds in the mouth of the river to clean it. We also take immersion or grade trips to learn about sustainability.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
Senior trip was a good memory. Its hard to say. I loved my time here. You will definitely grow. You will feel ready once you graduate but in the end even if you don't want to admit it. You will miss Christchurch. One thing I wish I would have done is gone to India with the school.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
Put yourself out there and be proactive. Introduce yourself.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
Everything. I really do not have a dislike.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
My favorite place to study was Headmasters Hill. You might even to get to see the corgis.
1.) Describe the academics at your school - what did you like most about it?
Class sizes were really small. We had extra help sessions where we could get help on missed assignments and on current and future work. My largest class was 15 and smallest was 4. Everyone knew everyone and everything.
1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
It's on the river. Small local towns nearby. About an hour from Richmond and from Williamsburg. There are 4 golf courses within 30 minutes. The school will take you shopping, just sign up!
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
Very diverse. I have met people from many different countries and you will love it. Everyone knows everybody including faculty and staff. Everyone is friendly.

- Wesley Theological Seminary I attended Christchurch School (CCS) from 1973 - 1976. I was one of the first African American students to attend and the seventh black to graduate from the school. I graduated with the distinct honor. . .
- Ohio Wesleyan University Christchurch helps all of their students truly find out "who they are" and what their strengths are. As a college and life preparatory environment, Christchurch succeeds in every way preparing their family of students to. . .
- Salisbury University A unique location overlooking the Rappahannock River in a rural area of Middlesex County of Virginia. A full waterfront with a varsity sailing and rowing team make CCS special. . .

Several things make boarding school special. The learning, the community, the sports. All these and more.

Sending your son or daughter to a progressive school sounds like a real leap of faith. It is, that is, until you look more closely at the kind of education your child will receive. Then you will understand the idealism in action which progressive schools embody.
