Corpus Christi School is a member school of the Archdiocese of New York.
We are a Catholic school, but children of all faiths are welcomed.
We have successfully educated children for over 100 years, and our traditional academic program is infused with the values and traditions of the Catholic faith.
We are concerned with and nurture the social and emotional development of our students as well their intellectual curiosity.
Our students achieve consistently high test scores and are accepted into some of the city's best high schools, Catholic and public.
Our balanced curriculum includes art, music, physical education, and technology.
Christian service, personal development, responsibility, and the love for learning are the cornerstones of our educational community.
We believe that the distinctive purpose of Corpus Christi School is to create a Christian educational community in which human culture and knowledge, enlightened and enlivened by faith are shared among teachers, students, families, and others who assist in various ways.
We believe that each child, created by God, is both alike and different from every human being.
Each child�s uniqueness affects his/her acceptance of the community and it especially influences his/her learning style.
