Principal’s Message




Dear Christ the King Family:
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Christ the King High School's 2021-2022 school year!
As many of you know, I have had the privilege to attend Christ the King as a student, and, then the honor to work at Christ the King as both a teacher and Athletic Director.  Now, as your Principal, I am excited to continue the strong tradition of academic excellence, competitive athletics, and spiritual education at Christ the King High School.
I am excited to welcome all of our students back into the building for a full, in-person, high school experience.  We have learned from the last eighteen months and have risen to the challenges of the pandemic.  Safety and providing our students with a quality education remain our primary focus.  We have taken efforts to ensure that our students, staff, and administration remain safe by following NYS mandated safety protocols.  
Additionally, Christ the King has invested in upgrading and enhancing building facilities and technology to make the up-coming year a success.  For example:
  • Installing a  state of the art purification system for improved air quality in each classroom; and,
  • Building of a Z-space lab, a multi-dimensional interactive AR/VR program which will be offered across all of our school disciplines.  The lab will engage our students through exploration and experimental learning.
At Christ the King, we are always seeking ways to provide our students with the most modern tools, facilities, knowledge, skills,  and spiritual faith to thrive in today's world and in their future careers.
I am looking forward to working with the administration, faculty, staff, parents and students to continue to build Chris the King High School into a pillar of Catholic education.
