Education

THE NEED

The area of education is one of the greatest injustices that still exist in our city. Too often, a child's zip code and neighborhood determines the success of his or her education, and thus the success of his or her future. At Christ Church, we believe that the hope of the gospel speaks directly to the educational system, and are proud to partner with three schools in the neighborhood of Binghampton: Cornerstone Prep Elementary, Lester Prep Middle, and East High School. Our vision is to impact the life of a child in the neighborhood from Pre-Kindergarten through their high school graduation through school partnerships, summer and after-school literacy development, and new teacher classroom support.
