As an independent school, Wheeling Country Day School relies heavily on the generosity of parents, alumni, friends, corporations, and foundations to fill the gap between the cost of educating and the revenue generated from tuition.
Established in 1929, Wheeling Country Day School is a non-profit, independent school for children ranging from preschool through eighth grade.
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 enrich learning opportunities. Personalized instruction using various methods and materials contributes to the total experience.
Gifts to this annual fund help support the many expenses associated with providing the high-quality, personalized academic experience offered at Wheeling Country Day School.
