Support For Military Families

Christ the King Catholic School is dedicated to supporting our military students and families. Approximately 13 military children are currently enrolled at our school.

We appreciate the sacrifices our families make each and every day. Our school is committed to serving students of our military heroes and supporting them both emotionally and academically.

Christ the King School is working to be designated the first Catholic School Purple Star School in the state by the Arkansas State Council of the Military Interstate Children’s Compact Commission for our commitment to supporting and serving military children and their families.

Every year we honor our Veterans with a Veteran’s Day Assembly and celebrate our military on 9/11 along side our local  emergency responders.

Christ the King School has a dedicated Military Liaison, Brandi Simpson, to provide any necessary support for our military families. Brandi will also serve as point of contact for our military families. She has specific training to assist families in any situation military students may face including, constant relocation, enrollment, eligibility, and dealing with a deployed parent.
