Mission and Philosophy

Our Mission…Christ the King Catholic School provides a quality Catholic education supported by the family, the teacher, the parish, and the community and makes a commitment to meet the specific needs of the academic, physical, social, and spiritual development of each student in a Christ-centered environment.

Our Philosophy…Christ the King Catholic School, as part of the Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Little Rock, seeks to offer high quality academic programs which are integrated with religious truth and values. Students are prepared for life in today’s Church and Society and for leadership in society and the Church of tomorrow through a strong, basic, and contemporary curriculum which includes instruction and formation in the beliefs, values, and traditions of Catholic Christianity. The development of the whole person of the student: spiritually, intellectually, personally, socially, and physically, is the focus of Catholic education. The teachers, as partners with the parents, play a significant role in this educational ministry as they daily witness to the meaning of mature faith and Christian living. They are selected with care and are challenged to on-going professional and spiritual growth.

Christ the King School, located in Fort Smith, Arkansas, was established in 1949. We are a parochial school with classes from 18 Months through 6th Grade. Christ the King Catholic School is a member of the National Catholic Education Association and is accredited though Arkansas Non-Public School Accrediting Association.
