Established in 1929, Wheeling Country Day School is a non-profit, independent school for children ranging from preschool through fifth grade. It is fully accredited by the Independent School Association of the Central States (ISACS) and is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), and Independent School Management (ISM).
Our mission is to empower students to think, to create and to communicate in a nurturing environment where learning and character are paramount.
Our philosophy is that Wheeling Country Day School’s purpose is to nurture the intellectual, creative, and ethical growth of children from diverse backgrounds. A balanced program of academic basics, fine arts, physical development, and critical thinking develops and enhances students’ individual and cooperative abilities. In a positive environment children learn to be self-reliant, self-motivated and resourceful learners. A supportive faculty challenges students to learn independently and within a group, with and without direct instruction, and the faculty rewards the students’ best efforts, ambition and accomplishments. A wide variety of activities beyond the classroom enriches learning opportunities. Personalized instruction using various methods and materials contributes to the total experience.
