Welcome Head of School

Our mission is to “foster a love of learning”. We accomplish this by providing a warm, nurturing learning environment and a developmentally appropriate curriculum. Dedicated teachers challenge students to achieve their personal best by recognizing their individual strengths and talents. Emphasis is placed on good citizenship and community service. Students develop a strong  foundation that prepares them to be successful both academically and socially.

At Christopher Academy, we embrace our rich traditions as we prepare for an exciting future.  Music and art enrich the learning experience. Technology gives our students the tools and resources they will need for the future.  Physical fitness is encouraged through physical activity classes and recess times.  Our goal is to help our students become well rounded individuals and confident learners who are well prepared for their next school and beyond.

Our school community is characterized by a skilled and passionate faculty, enthusiastic students, and a parent body dedicated to supporting the School in a wide variety of ways. CA serves the larger community of Portsmouth through various service projects, supporting the School’s goal of instilling an ethic of social responsibility and good citizenship in its students. We are proud to offer leadership opportunities for all students regardless of age – from the youngest line leader to the homework coordinators in the upper elementary grades.

We invite you to learn more about Christopher Academy by exploring our website and contacting us to schedule a visit.

Only my best,

Miriam A. Terry
