Impressed by the uncommon management skills of the Marist Brothers in successful running of schools since their coming into Nigeria, the Abuja Catholic Archdiocese invited the Brothers to manage Christ the King College. Located in Gwagwalada area of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, CKC as it is called was established in 1991 to provide quality Christian education to boys of different ethnic and religious backgrounds.
In some cases, parents have preference for same sex education especially when such parents are too busy to effectively monitor their wards either at home or school. Christ the King College Gwagwalada provides such unique opportunity being an all boys school with very high degree of discipline and well thought out extra-curricular activities that join with the regular Marist School curriculum to shape young minds in readiness for quality leadership.
The school is located about 30 minutes from the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja and five minutes away from the Lokoja/Kadunna Highway, thus combining accessibility with serenity conducive for quality teaching, learning and living.
