The new Christ the King Chapel will provide much needed space for our growing student body. Constructed at the highest point of our campus it will serve as our the spiritual, intellectual, and social heart of our academic community.
This is the most ambitious building project we have ever undertaken. The new bell tower and spires will rise out of the valley along the shores of the Shenandoah River on our campus. The chapel will be visible for miles and serve as the outward expression of our role as the standard for fidelity and authentic liberal arts education with Christ at the center of all we do.
