  • 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.
