Staff & Faculty

We have a diverse team of educational professionals dedicated to the success of each and every one of our students.

Wheeling Country Day School is more than just a school – we are a community. Our teachers care for their students like parents care for their children. Our teachers know each student that comes into our school – not just the names of kids in their class. This makes a difference.

Our faculty and staff create an environment that is welcoming to students and their families. 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.

It's Possible Here.

Wheeling Country Day School is a safe place to try a new skill that could become a life’s passion, to connect with an adult who will forever believe in you unconditionally, to balance the vulnerability, to lead with the empowerment of being part of a team and something greater than yourself.
