Christ the Teacher Catholic School (CTTCS), located in Newark, Delaware, opened in 2002 and continues to grow and develop its identity, academics, and programs. The curriculum and activities reflect the care and core values of the school community through love, peace, justice, and mercy. Our work in creating a respectful and inclusive environment led to CTTCS being the first Catholic school in Delaware to be named a "No Place for Hate School" by the Anti-Defamation League.
The mission of CTTCS is to serve our community by nurturing the academic, spiritual, moral, social, and physical development of our students. With Christ as our model, we foster an atmosphere of mutual respect and cooperation among students, parents, faculty, and staff. We honor our students by embracing their individual gifts and talents through worship, education, service, and stewardship.
A rich and varied academic atmosphere challenges students to achieve their full potential and is designed to stimulate the intellect and curiosity of each learner. Numerous sports, clubs, competitions, instrumental music lessons, band, choir, musicals, foreign language, advanced courses, and elective courses are offered. Service-learning is part of the school tradition and can be seen in individual and community endeavors. Technology is integrated into all areas of study and a 1-to-1 Chromebook plan has been implemented with the middle school students.
CTTCS students are recruited by high schools with many graduates receiving scholarships. Students leave CTTCS well prepared for high school and life experiences, motivated for success, and firmly anchored in Christian traditions and values.
