About CES

Welcome to Christ Episcopal School (CES), Nacogdoches, and thank you for your interest in our great school! Through the admission process, we hope to get to know your family and to help you learn all you can about CES. Our school meets the needs of many, but not all children. Our goal is to help each prospective family in determining if CES is the "right fit" for both child and family. We hope you will be a part of CES special events such as the Pumpkin Patch, Science Night, and our school plays and concerts in December and May. A yearly calendar is available online. These CES events provide opportunity to understand the culture of CES.
