Corpus Christi is a wonderful school. We started our children in public school but moved to CC post-pandemic. I am so glad we did. Our children are thriving, and not just academically. CC has a huge emphasis on "community;" what it means to be a responsible member of a community and the school is truly a community. Your child will be seen and valued for who they are at CC and given the tools to succeed here.

Corpus Christi is a great school. All of the primary grades have a full time aide, so the student teacher ratio is closer to 1:15. The families are welcoming, the teachers are gifted and the principal is truly amazing. It is a great place for Catholics and non-catholics alike.
