The process of choosing a school for your child is a challenging and difficult one. As you embark on this journey, I invite you to consider Corpus Christi Catholic School (CCS). We are a community of one faith, one family and one foundation. We are a welcoming community, and one that is extremely proud of our 50 year history of excellence. Our mission is to provide sound spiritual, educational, moral, ethical, and social teachings. Our school, with grades Pre-K3 through eight, provides a nurturing learning community. CCS is a Catholic school that is committed to teaching the message of Jesus and the truths of the Catholic faith, while providing the highest level of a challenging academic program.
CCS curriculum is designed to meet and exceed the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and Middle States Commission Core Curriculum Content Standards for Education. We provide a rigorous curriculum using state of the art technology (Google Classroom, Google Chromebooks, Apple TVs, 1:1 iPad learning). For the 2016-2017 academic year, CCS is proud to begin a new reader series (Journeys) and Science Program (Science Fusion) to its curriculum. We also incorporated into our curriculum web based learning databases which include but are not limited to: Destiny, PebbleGo, TumbleBook, and World Book). Our dedicated, experienced faculty model lifelong learning through ongoing professional development. Approximately, 95% of our graduates continue their education in Catholic high schools (both local and private). Class sizes at CCS are small and provide for individual attention and active learning experiences. The ultimate goal is to enable our students to become independent learners and thinkers who can apply what they have learned in real-life situations. We emphasize going beyond the school walls and encourage participation in many of extra-curricular activities (Reading Olympics, Performing Arts (Band, Choir, Drama & Orchestra), Robotics, Science Explorers, Scouting, and Athletics) to round out our students learning.
For 50 years, CCS has been setting a standard of excellence in our area. We are proud to provide an outstanding educational opportunity for our students in a nurturing, faith-based community and we look forward to the opportunity to share it with your child (ren) and family.
