Spearheaded by a group of parents who attended Christ Church, Christ Episcopal School opened in 1984 with 34 students in grades 1-4. Since then Christ Episcopal School has grown considerably and a second campus was opened adjacent to Christwood in 1997. Now Christ Episcopal School is an independent, co-educational college preparatory day school with 600+ students. The Christwood Boulevard Campus (CBC) houses grades 1 through 12, while the Pre-K and Kindergarten classes, the Early Childhood Campus (ECC), remain on the campus of Christ Church.

Before the extreme growth of the Northshore, long-time members of Christ Church expressed the need for a retirement community so they could continue to reside on this side of the lake as they aged. After much research and hard work, the continuing care retirement community (CCRC) named Christwood was created. Site work was begun in 1994 and Christwood opened in 1996 with independent living apartments, assisted living units and skilled nursing units. Since then, individual cottages have been constructed, as well as an additional apartment building and a community center which is a hub for fitness, wellness and educational programs, social activities, healthy dining and pampering.
