School History And Tradition 

CTK.jpgChrist the King Catholic Elementary in Etobicoke had its beginnings in 1947 with three classes in the church basement and one in the church itself.

In 1948 the school moved into a brand new building directly behind the church on Lake Shore Avenue in beautiful downtown Long Branch.
The school moved to Franklin Horner Middle School on Horner Avenue (which had been declared surplus by the Etobicoke Board of Education) so that the site could go through intensive repairs. In September 1997 the school moved back to its current location.
In 2008, Christ the King, St. Teresa, St. Ambrose and St. Josaphat schools went through a SARC (School Accommodation Review Committee) in order to establish the viability of amalgamating, relocating and/or rebuilding some or all of the aforementioned schools. The end result for Christ the King is the amalgamation with St. Teresa with the promise of a new building to be constructed on the southwest corner of Kipling Avenue and Lake Shore Boulevard West. The projected occupancy date for the new school is September 2015 – but possibly sooner if all goes well with the permit s and the construction phase of the build!

Both school CSAC’s are very involved with the project updates while working closely together in order to ensure a great new school for both communities. Stay tuned for project
