Christ the Teacher Catholic School
Diocese of Wilmington
Christ the Teacher Catholic School opened in 2002 as a regional elementary school in the Diocese of Wilmington. It was the first Catholic school built in Delaware since 1962. It has grown to more than 600 students in Pre-K 3 & 4 through 8th grade and continues to maintain a spirit of service, mercy, faith, and scholarship. Christ the Teacher students graduate knowledgeable in the faith, confident, grounded, and prepared for high school. Vibrant, challenging, and innovative programs in faith development, academics, the arts and athletics contribute to independent, critical thinkers prepared to be responsible stewards of the world. They learn the values of mercy, service, hospitality and academic excellence.
