For more than 100 years, the Christopher House mission has been to strengthen and empower economically disadvantaged children and their families by providing a continuum of educational and human services.
We operate accredited early learning, elementary, and out of school time programs grounded in research-based curricula and high-quality instruction. Understanding that stand-alone education interventions are not enough, Christopher House utilizes a family-centered approach that engages parents and care givers in the child’s healthy development and provides opportunities for sustained economic self-sufficiency for the whole family. Christopher House values high expectations and an educational program that leverages arts integration, project-based learning, parent involvement, celebration of diversity, and a commitment to measurable results. These values are the framework of our learning community and extend to students, parents, teachers, and administrators. These values have resulted in educational services that produce significant returns in student achievement and parental involvement.
We have built on our portfolio of early learning centers to expand this transformative culture into a birth to eighth grade school composed of an Early Childhood and Elementary School. The school is creating unprecedented collaboration between early childhood and elementary educators as well as family support programs. In addition, it will provide foundational exposure during the earliest years of life to our culture of high expectations and academic excellence
