CK Virtue Pledge

As a Christ the King Catholic School Crusader, I dedicate myself and support others in living virtue. I commit to constructive thoughts, words, and deeds, and when faced with challenges or conflicts, I will find solutions that cultivate virtue.

Weekly Virtues

The essence of Christian discipline is formation in virtue. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church: “The goal of a virtuous life is to become like God.” (CCC 1803)

Preschool through 8th Grade students focus on a virtue each week. The purpose of this is to increase our knowledge of virtuous behavior and help us to live the virtues daily, and recognize when we need virtue.
