Our Vision

Christopher House will create a national model for helping low-income, at-risk children and their families achieve success in school, the workplace, and life.

Our Purpose

Helping children and their families thrive.  

We partner with families to provide a continuum of innovative schools for students from birth through high school as well as adult educational programs that create stable, self-sufficient families.

Our Values

  • Commitment to Excellence
  • Achievement and Perseverance
  • Respect and Compassion
  • Equality of Opportunity

Our Beliefs

Children and families thrive when:

  • They have access to a high quality education
  • Education begins at birth, with parents as the first teacher, and continues through life
  • Parents have high standards and set high expectations for their children and themselves
  • Professionally trained teachers use strength-based instruction and  know their students as individuals
  • Parents support their children financially and emotionally
  • Evaluations and program adjustments are data driven
  • Education includes developing perseverance and social intelligence
  • Parents and teachers work together to continuously improve programs
