Christ the King Catholic School, located in the heart of South Tampa, FL, has served generations of families since 1949. With a decades-long commitment to a successful PreK4 through 8th grade model, CKS has built a reputation as an academic leader grounded in a strong tradition of character, community and faith.
The CKS experience balances proven methodologies with the latest innovations in education. Further strengthened by consistent evaluation of programs, a dedication to continuous improvement, and ongoing professional development for faculty, the result is an academic program that brings learning to life in our classrooms and throughout our campus. Teachers inspire creativity, encourage problem solving and foster mastery of new technologies. Students in every grade have access to lessons that prepare them for the future, from coding in PreK4 and robotics in 5th grade, to Computer-Aided Design (CAD) technology in middle school.
Our motto, "Love to Learn, Live to Serve," continues to inspire our community of students, teachers and families. We are proud to see our students graduate as the leaders of the future: faithful, life-long learners, dedicated to service and equipped to handle the challenges of high school and beyond.
