Corpus Christi Provides Nurturing Environment

WHEELING - Raising the standard in education, Corpus Christi School provides a meaningful learning experience so that students can grow spiritually, socially, intellectually, and emotionally in a nurturing environment.

In keeping Jesus as our foundation and friend, we are constantly striving to draw closer to Him and proclaim His love. Weekly children's masses, holy day observances, receiving the sacraments, sacramental preparation, daily prayers, rosary service, daily religion classes, and ACRE testing in grades 5-8 (assessment of catechesis religious education) develop a closer relationship with God.

Corpus Christi School strives to know each child personally, which allows us to challenge each child's individual growth. We believe that each student from pre-school to eighth grade is a unique and important person and that every facet of his or her life should be developed to its full potential.
