Open for On Site Learning Waiver Granted


City Tree Christian School is open for in-person learning for infants to grade 8.  Our preschool program reopened in May 2020. Our K-6 program received a waiver to open from the County of San Diego and California Department of Health in August.  Our 7-8 grades students began on September 1, 2020.


During the summer we developed reopening plans to ensure healthy environments for our students, teachers, and staff.  For more information about these reopening plans, please click below.
