The spiritual formation of each child is central to the mission of Christ Light of the Nations. As a Catholic School, Christ Light strives to enhance the spiritual life of every student through both formal religious education and by fostering a faith-filled environment. Christ Light of the Nations offers a quality academic experience within the Catholic tradition while welcoming students of all faiths.
Our curriculum creates both awareness and respect for those virtues and values that come from the Christian tradition. A core knowledge approach to learning begins with an important question: what foundational skills can we instill in students for them to serve as leaders in their own communities? The academic program answers this by identifying the critical knowledge and skills which are to be taught at each grade level. The curriculum is consistent from one classroom to the next and is spiraled from grade to grade.
Christ Light of the Nations School opened its doors in August of 2005. As a newly consolidated school, Christ Light brought together the students and faculties from Corpus Christi, John Paul II and St. John Neumann Catholic schools. These schools and the schools they came from have a rich history in north county dating back to 1928.
