Christ Episcopal School (CES) is a diverse community celebrating over 50 years of academic excellence in historic downtown Rockville. A ministry of Christ Episcopal Church Prince George’s Parish, founded in 1726, CES honors its history while also embracing families of all faiths. We provide a rigorous and rich private school education at an affordable price. And, in addition to the resources provided by Rockville and the metropolitan Washington, DC area, our instruction reaches beyond our location in Rockville Town Center. We have now partnered with YMM Art Space, an international art education organization with worldwide locations, to provide our students with a superb visual arts program that is enriched with YMM Art’s global expertise. We also have an international student program, allowing us to assist students in obtaining an F1 Student Visa. This year, we particularly look forward to proceeding with our building plans and facilities update. In spring 2019, we will break ground on a brand new building for our Lower School, administrative offices, library, art studio and practice gym with locker rooms. This past summer, we renovated the large all-purpose event space in one of our current buildings into a beautiful and multi-functional venue.
Our strong, collaborative curriculum provides a healthy challenge for students, giving them room to grow as individuals. The academic program also includes an emphasis on teamwork. CES students become experienced members of teams that research, collaborate and problem solve together, acquiring skills and values that support acceptance, appreciation and support of one another in both academic and social situations.
Students leave CES well prepared for the rapidly changing world in which they live and are welcomed into top independent schools and public school honors and magnet programs.
At Christ Episcopal School, every student and parent is a priority, and academic excellence, respect, and a passion to serve are the inspiration for our community. Every interaction is rooted in our CES promise: to nurture students to become kind, confident, well-rounded individuals prepared to contribute to their community and thrive personally, spiritually and academically.
