Mission: Christopher House has been helping children and families for more than 100 years. Today, Christopher House’s family of schools serves low-income, at-risk children, and their families for success in school, the workplace, and life. We partner with parents to provide wraparound supportive services in addition to the rigorous college prep curriculum. We set high standards for our students, parents, and ourselves.
