Christchurch School

Christchurch School

Christchurch School is a co-ed, boarding and day school for students in grades 9 - 12.  We are located on 125 acres on the Rappahannock River in Virginia, approximately 1 hour from Richmond, Virginia and 2 1/2 hours from Washington DC.

Christchurch has a diverse population of day and boarding students - our students are from 23 countries and 16 states in the US. We win state athletic championships most years and were the National Team Racing Sailing Champions in 2019.  Our arts program offers various classes and activities, including three plays each year.


The school was founded as an Episcopal school with a strong moral base.  We offer a place-based academic curriculum, as well as artistic, athletic and co-curricular activities.  Students learn life skills such as critical thinking, public speaking, problem solving, and working in groups -- skills that they can apply to their life, both in school and in the working world after university. We have a strong Learning Skills Program with various levels of support for students who learn differently.


Christchurch uses the river as a teaching tool, as well as for recreation, and we offer trips abroad each year to learn and grow. Christchurch School graduates attend top colleges and universities in the US and abroad.
